Editorial Page 



THE CRUCIBLE takes great pleasure in an- 
nouncing the publication of a book of poems from 
the pen of Norman C. Schlichter, Litt.D., of the 
Class of 1897. The book is published by the Gor- 
ham Press of Boston, Mass., and is entitled Chil- 
dren's Voices and Voices of Joy." The first part 
consists of more than a dozen poems on The 
Child in the House." This is followed by a num- 
ber of poems on "Child Thoughts". The title of 
the last part of the book is "Voices of Joy' . 

To the students of the college it will be of in- 
terest to know that in his college days Dr. 
Schlichter was a frequent contributor to the For- 
um, at that time the monthly literary publication 
of the institution. These contributions showed 
poetical ability of a high order, and his many 
friends among the Alumni were certain that at 
some time they would have the privilege of read- 
ing a collection of poems written in his best vein. 

The book begnis with a Thanksgiving song 
with these opening lines 

For little acts of kindness done, 

For thoughts of beauty born, 
To blossom all around me in the sun 

With each recurring morn, 
My heart is singing! 

For friendship with its ties of gold 

To bind around the soul 
And warm our lonely spirits in the cold 

To see love's aureole, 
My heart is singing! 

"Trundle-Bed Town" had been published in 
"The Youths' Companion." This poem with 
"Boy Eyes," "Where Baby Sleeps," and "On a 
Child's Picture" remind one of Eugene Field at 
his best. Where can there be found a better de- 
scription than in the following lines from "Boy 
Eyes"? 

Boy eyes! Pure eyes! 
No hint of care, 

They look up above 
To angels who love, 
Boy eyes, pure eyes — 
Baby's at prayer. 

Boy eyes! Tired eyes! 
Dreaming truth-deep, 
Head on the pillow, 
Drooped as the willow, 
Boy eyes, tired eyes — 
Baby's asleep. 

Of special merit is the poem "On Seeing a 
Child Pray," which ends as follows: 

A child at the feet of our Father in heaven! 
What tender trust and true 

From the baby breast 

Of the Angels' guest 
Is sweeping through the blue. 

A child at the feet of our Father in heaven! 
Would I could claim as they 
Of the sinless hand, 
In the Mayday land, 
The Master's ear today! 

Rarely in the literature of childhood is the child 
mind so well interpreted as in the lines on 
"Stars": 



I think the stars too little are 

To carry lamps with light; 
Now wouldn't it be dreadful 

If they'd stumble in the night 
And burn each other, oh ,so bad 
No stars would evermore be had! 

Does anything in Robert Louis Stevenson sur- 
pass this? 

Surely Dr. Schlichter has well understood the 
boy mind in the following: 

I love my teacher just enough. 

I would not love her more, 
Lest sometime she might call me back 

When I go out the door. 

When we turn to the "Voices of Joy" we find 
an elevation of spirit and a wholesome optimism 
that contrasts favorably with much of the writ- 
ing that passes for poetry in the present day. It 
is a striking evidence of versatility and of poetic 
genius that the same writer who penned the child 
poems in lighter vein could rise to the majestic 
splendor of thought expressed in the stately lines 
on "The Susquehanna River at Harrisburg": 

Here mountains part to let the river roll 

Eternal toward its salt tumultuous goal; 

The animated beauties of its tide 

A special happy splendor here provide; 

And here the river seems to laugh out story 

Of its previous perfect path of glory 

As if it knew there might be vast delight 

Within these mountains at the lovely sight; 

Then graceful bending, beauty-set, it flows, 

Flows on with sweet enchantment and repose. 

Who has not felt what the poet alone could 
express in the lines on "The Open Hill": 

Sometimes the city makes me glad, 

Sometimes her joy can thrill; 
But oh, 'tis not the joy I had 
Upon the open hill. 
One of the features of the book is the "Lyrics 
of Thornhill". Here the poet found inspiration 
in the scenery and in 

"Mildred, Betty, 
Allen and John, 
And the 'Happy Acres' 
They romp upon." 
The children to whom the book is dedicated. 

But the book must be read through to be ap- 
preciated. We are glad that a busy career in the 
Industrial Work of the Young Men's Christian 
Association has not dulled the poetic sense of 
the author. Perchance it was the appeal in the 
lines entitled "Come back, O spirit of the Mild 
Content" that called forth new inspiration: 

.... "Oh, spirit, fly 
Unto my need. Cut short this bitter thrall 
And help me find again my long lost power 
To voice the beauties of the earth and sky." 

The book is truly filled with voices of joy and 
it is to be hoped that this is but the beginning 

th ? Poetical writings of this gifted son of Leba- 
non Valley College. 

"Children's Voices and Voices of Jov " by 
Norman C. Schlichter. Published by Richard G. 
cadger, Boston, Massachusetts.

OPENING DAY AT LEBANON VALLEY 



"All on your feet now and let's give a Ram-a- 
zamma for the faculty." So it was that Leba- 
non Valley opened on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Every 
seat in the chapel was occupied when the faculty 
came in and took their places on the platform. 

Dr. Blose opened the exercises with an organ 
prelude. This was followed by a song by the 
school, after which Dr. Runk read the Scripture 
and offered prayer. Dr. Gossard introduced the 
speaker of the morning, Dr. Statton, of the Penn- 
sylvania Conference. In his talk to the students 
Dr. Statton gave some good advice to the new 
ones and some useful hints to those who have 
been here before. He said one of the greatest 
assets in life was a charming; personality, and 
college was the place to cultivate one. He urged 
everyone to make the best of his college educa- 
tion so that he could take his proper place in the 
world's activities. At the close of Dr. Statton's 
address Dr. Gossard welcomed the old students 
as well as the new ones, telling them that if they 
wished to be successful and make Lebanon Valley 
a better institution they must all work together 
for the good of their Alma Mater. After a song 
by the school, the exercises were over and Leba- 
non Valley College had opened what is to be 
the most successful year thus far in the history 
of the school. 



THE CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC 



The faculty, the many students and friends of 
Lebanon Valley College have reason for rejoicing 
and congratulation in the reorganization of the 
Conservatory department and the fresh impetus 
being given to its activities by its able and en- 
thusiastic director, Dr. Johann M. Blose. In him 
we find not only exceptional musicianship and 
the results of an experience as artist, composer, 
teacher and conductor, but seemingly exhaustless 
energy and boundless enthusiasm. He is working 
day and night, not .only to build up the musi- 
cal department, but to place it on a first class 
basis and materially increase the standards. This 
will mean better and more effective work among 
the students, as well as a broader culture along 
♦ msical lines among the entire student body. 

Like all true musical artists, he and his col- 
leagues take the ground that music is a serious 
and important branch of education, not a pastime 
nor a mere parlor accomplishment. One of the 
various means employed to emphasize this 
thought will be the semi-monthly students' re- 
citals, which have a double purpose: first, to af- 
ford all students an opportunity to play in pub- 
lic frequently, and thus overcome the almost uni- 
versal embarrassed self-consciousness which seri- 
ously interferes, in the case of young performers, 
with successful appearances before audiences; 
second, to provide for all students an opportunity 
of hearing many works of considerable value, 
which they personally have not time to study, 
thus widening their acquaintance with musical 
literature. 

Another important feature will be the work of 
the Choral Symphony Society, which will study 
and present a number of standard choral and in- 
strumental works. Without having had a prac- 



tical experience in the study of this class of 
musical literature, the equipment and abilities of 
a musician are seriously deplete. 

Professor Hardman, the newly engaged head 
of the Voice department, a graduate of the Con- 
servatory, returns to us with a well-trained voice 
and several years of successful experience as a 
teacher in other schools, and his work among us 
promises the best results. 

Professor Campbell is well known as a thor- 
oughly equipped and conscientious teacher of both 
organ and piano, and is welcomed back by many 
friends and former pupils. 

Sir Edward Baxter Perry comes to us with a 
reputation as one of the foremost of the world's 
pianists, with a record of almost three thousand 
and five hundred recitals in all parts of the 
United States and in foreign countries in the past, 
the highest endorsements by the press in all 
countries, and with a number of years' experience 
as pianoforte instructor and lecturer on Music, 
Language and Philosophy. Unquestionably he 
will prove a most valuable asset to the education- 
al facilities of our College and Conservatory. He 
is also a composer of note, and his published 
works are rapidly gaining popularity with the 
higher musicians and artists. 

In view of the above mentioned factors we 
have every reason for confidence in the rapid 
upbuilding of the Conservatory, and are glad to 
express our heartiest wishes and hopes for the 
same. 1 



DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES 



The growing demand for Latin courses in all 
the universities of the country shows unmistak- 
able signs of a revival of interest in classical 
studies. L. V. C. intends to keep pace with this 
movement, and has this year secured Prof. H. 
Bennett, B.A., Ph.D., to take charge of this de- 
partment of the college work. Prof. Bennett 
comes to us from the College of Charleston, 
Charleston, South Carolina. He is a graduate 
of the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. of the 
University of Chicago. During the war he served 
in France with the Canadian forces. 

Dr. Bennett plans to reorganize the Latin de- 
partment of the college, with a view to making 
the courses more attractive and interesting. He 
believes that the use of Latin for purposes of 
mental discipline should be restricted, for the 
most part, to High Schools, and that college Latin 
courses should contain a maximum of cultural, 
literary training and a minimum of grammatical 
"grind". To this end he will endeavor to select 
for reading in class those works which embody 
the best in Roman literature and which are best 
adapted for use as a basis for the discussion of 
ancient mythology, religion, philosophy, politics, 
and other phases of "the grandeur that was 
Rome". 

Special lecture courses on various phases of 
ancient civilization will be offered from time 
to time. 

For students who expect to teach Latin after 
graduation, and therefore wish to make a sys- 
tematic review of the grammatical principles, 
Prof. Bennett hopes to be able to offer a special 
teachers' training course in the Senior year. 



Literary 



THE BYWAYS 



In the highways of life there is hurry and stress 

And life is a movement complete 

That fills our veins with stirring flood 

And we feel that living is sweet. 

But when evening comes and the cool night shades 

Fall over a weary earth 

In the byways of life 

That are free from all strife 

We will find true merit and worth. 

— C. R. Drummond. 



MAN 



Who made the sky of deepest blue, 

Who shaped the trees, the fields, the flowers, 

Who formed the savage beasts of prey, 

And fashioned Nature's quiet bowers? 

He, Creator of a universe, 

The maker of the sea and land, 

Made also thee — His masterpiece — 

The work of His almighty hand. 



SQUEAKING BOARDS AT MIDNIGHT 



No, I am not a Sherlock Holmes. Nor am I 
a burglar who prowls about in the night. And 
naturally you ask, "Then what do you know about 
squeaking boards at midnight?" But, my dear 
reader, let me tell you that the average college 
girl usually knows as much about squeaking 
boards as sne knows about, well — trigonometry. 

You may think that "squeaks is squeaks." But 
she understands a board's friendly squeak. And 
she recognizes the horrible squeak which tells 
her that an ill wind blows for her. Indeed, she 
is a connoisseur of squeaking boards. 

Until recently I considered myself a complete 
judge of squeaks at midnight. Only once did I 
mistake a creak for a squeak. But now I am 
resigned to the fact that squeaks are sometimes 
misleading or even untruthful, or else the high 
and mighty one, who keeps a close vigil on un- 
suspecting girls, whether it be midnight, noon or 
morning, has learned the art better than we 
have. I suppose she says, as she steps on the 
creaking board: "Breathe out slowly, thinking of 
tone, little board, and be sure to send it over 
a curve." At any rate, I hate squeaking boards. 
And this is the reason: 

It was one evening not long before the Christ- 
mas holidays, that several Senior girls gathered 
in our room for a midnight feed. And as we ate 
we chatted about pleasant things. Suddenly, 
some one heard a squeak — and a foreboding 
squeak it was! The visitors crept silently to 
their respective rooms, and we were left alone 
to face the ordeal. We waited. Nothing hap- 
pened. And still we waited. Finally we came 
to the conclusion that we must have been mis- 
taken, when suddenly we heard another squeak. 
This time it was such a friendly, mischievous 
squeak. My room-mate whispered, "It is only 
that crowd of girls trying to frighten us." I 
agreed in a whisper, and again the little board 
squeaked. I went to the door without a sound, 
turned the knob gently, banged open the door 
and bawled out, "Caught you that time." And 



there in the doorway, garbed in a red kimono, 
stood the high and mighty one. 

I need not relate the sad consequences. But I 
repeat, I hate squeaking boards, day or night, 
but I hate them extremely at midnight. 



THE MILLINERY OF THE CHOIR 



Men often boast that they don't care about 
style, and they criticize the women, — poor victims 
of fate — because they pay such strict attention 
to form. Well, they make me tired! Men are 
fortunate not to have to wear hats, for while 
some women do enjoy flaunting a new hat in a 
jealous neighbor's face, there are others who 
would give their last penny in this old world to 
be able to go to church without a hat, and not 
be criticized for it. I am one of them. I hate 
hats. Sit in the choir loft in full view of a 
devout Christian audience ( ? ) wearing the same 
old hat week after week, and folks begin to won- 
der whether you are too tight to buy a new tfne. 
Wear a new one, and they nearly gawk their eyes 
out, or get cross-eyed trying; to see if it is trim- 
med with ribbon or braid, and whether it 
wouldn't look better tilted to one side. If you 
wear a big hat, the prima donna sitting next, 
kicks, because she can't see the preacher, when 
all the time you know she doesn't really want to 
see him, but just wants to attract attention to 
the handsome chicken feather on her new hat. 

I'd like to choke the fellow, and it must have 
been a man, that made it fashionable — bah! that 
hateful word — and proper for a woman to wear 
a hat to church. If it is reverent for a man to 
enter a sacred place with bared head, why isn't 
it for a woman? 

You say, "Well then, go without hats, and 
troubles will cease." Oh, no! they don't. They 
only begin. Suppose you were in a choir which 
had always been accustomed to leave their hats 
at home, anywhere but on their heads during the 
hottest part of the summer, and the new Rev. 
Jones, a kind and generous man, was perfectly 
willing that you should continue the custom, and 
then suppose you went into church and took 
your place, feeling light enough to fly, and Mrs. 
Jones, the new minister's wife, nearly died from 
shock and chagrin to think how worldly the 
young folks were becoming, that they had lost 
all reverence for sacred things. And then to 
"top it off" the next week at church Rev. Jones 
would tell the choir he much prefers them to 
wear hats, it is so much more dignified. Later 
you overhear Mrs. Jones telling one of the mem- 
bers that she could not sleep all night last Sun- 
day because the choir had not worn hats. Come 
without hats? No, you Wouldn't. We tried it 
and it did not work. 

So now we come to church, in winter and sum- 
mer, wearing big hats or little hats, old hats or 
new hats, and if people stare, we just let them 
stare, because they will anyhow. 



Esther B. — "What are you thinking about, 
Frances ?" 

Frances Durbin — "Nothing. You see, I have 
so much mental power that the force of it carries 
me right along without thinking." 

Ruth Harpel— "Some force!"

Activities 



THE STUDENTS' RECEPTION 



The first social activity of the year in which 
the whole school participated was held Saturday 
evening, September the twenty-third, at eight 
o clock, a reception is given in the beginning 
of each year for all the faculty and students. It 
is really an "ice-breaker", because the main ob- 
ject of tne party is to have everybody meet every- 
body else, and thus become acquainted with one's 
associates for the coming year. The Y. W. and 
Y. M. C. A. take this way to formally introduce 
them to each other. 

The reception this year was held, as usual, in 
the Alumni Gymnasium, which was gayly dec- 
orated with the college colors and class pennants 
and banners of the four literary societies. While 
the students passed along the receiving line, 
making and renewing acquaintances with the 
members of the faculty, a Victrola played con- 
stantly, which added to the pleasure of the even- 
ing. After everybody had gathered together in 
the lower floor of the "gym", Mr. Ralph Boyer, 
president of the Y. M. C. A., announced that the 
faculty could rest while the students played a 
"get acquainted" game, in which every student 
with a partner had a chance to talk for a few 
seconds with every other couple in the room. Af- 
ter this, things progressed better, and everybody 
felt more comfortable. The following program 
was then given: Short addresses of welcome 
by Mr. Ralph Boyer, president of the Y. M. C. A., 
and by Miss Delia Herr, president of the Y. W. 
C. A.; selections by the Men's Glee Club; read- 
ings by Misses Mae Reeves and Edna Baker; fol- 
lowed by words of welcome and outlines of the 
work carried on by each of the following organ- 
izations: Dramatic Society, by Miss Kathryn 
Kratzert; Mathematical Round Table, by Mr. He- 
ber Mutch; Men's Senate, by Mr. Richard Smith; 
Women's Student Government Association, by 
Miss Esther Brunner; Clionian Literary Society, 
by Miss Lucile Shenk; Kalozetean Literary So- 
ciety, by Mr. William Wenner; Delphian Liter- 
ary Society, by Miss Mae Reeves; Philokosmian 
Literary Society, by Mr. Raymond Hutchinson; 
and the Student Volunteer Band, by Miss Eleanor 
Sheaffer. After the program a social hour was 
spent, during which refreshments were served. 

Everybody left the reception declaring they 
had had a fine time and were ready to take up 
the work of the year, because they felt they knew 
everybody just a little better and felt more "at 
home," as everybody must feel if they want to 
enjoy and get the most out of college life at dear 
old L. V. C.

Y. W. C. A. CABINET ENTERTAIN FACULTY 
LADIES AND NEW GIRLS 



Thursday, September 21, the ladies' parlor, 
North Hall, was the scene of a most enjoyable 
hour. From without could be heard strains of 
music, mingled with outbursts of laughter, thus 
assuring any passerby that the participants with- 
in were, at least, a jolly crowd. 

It was the privilege of those present to enjoy 
the conventional cup of tea from the hands of 
Mrs. Gossard and Madam Green. 

But somehow we imagine that the attention of 
the freshmen guests was divided, for they, rather 
oddly attired, could not help thinking of those 
ruffled and dainty dresses, which for good rea- 
sons were not worn. We wonder if they were 
philosophizing on that important subject, "The 
Advantage of a Handicap." Yet it seems as 
though every one ought to enjoy an occasional 
journey back to childhood. 

Notwithstanding the excellency of the guests, 
there were some lemons present. But we are 
glad to say that they were sweetened ones. 

Yet in the midst of enjoyment there was heard 
some criticism. But, we suppose that it is only 
natural that every lassie should want her laddie. 

It is true, that the aim of this social hour was, 
that all should have a good time. But most of 
all, that the faculty ladies, and the new girls, 
might become acquainted. 

We hope, and also feel, that all were greatly 
enriched for having the pleasure of meeting 
such splendid ladies, and enjoying their friend- 
ship. 



STUDENT VOLUNTEERS 



The Student Volunteers of Lebanon Valley 
College hold meetings each week, for the pur- 
pose of prayer, and fellowship with God. Their 
desire is to become better acquainted with Him, 
in order that they may be able to give Him to 
others. A very interesting program is being 
planned for the coming year, the aim of which is 
to help the members of the band in their prep- 
aration for the work to which they have been 
called. 

The Volunteers of this college were repre- 
sented at a Student Volunteer Conference, held 
at Ursinus College, September 9th and 10th, by 
Miss Eleanor Sheaffer, one of the members. 
Student Volunteers from fourteen different col- 
leges were there, as well as four members of 
the executive committee of the Eastern Union of 
Student Volunteers. The associations with these 
students and leaders were very helpful and up- 
lifting. 

The Volunteer Band is looking forward to the 
visit of Miss Mary J. Baker, one of the travel- 
ing secretaries, to Lebanon Valley. It is sincere- 
ly hoped that her visit here, on October 3rd and 
4th, may be beneficial to all. Miss Baker at- 
tended the recent conference at Ursinus, and 
promises to be a very interesting guest.

PHILO 



School had scarcely commenced when, on the 
evening of the first Friday of the college year, 
the Philokosmian Literary Society held its first 
literary session of the term. Once again Philo 
Hall was filled with college men. Pres. Boyer 
gave his inaugural address. His invigorating 
and inspirational speech is but an indication of 
the spirit in which he will exercise the duties of 
the chair during his term of office. 
The following program was rendered: 

1922 Football Possibilities R. H. Smith 

My Summer Experience G. P. Cooley 

Piano Solo Donald Fields 

Debate: Resolved, That any intervention in the 
Greek-Turkish contest on the part of one or 
more of the Allied powers would be justified. 
Affirmative, R. E. Allen; Negative, R. Hutch- 
inson. 

Reading C. C. Smith 

Living Thoughts J. Stumbach 

The numbers on the program were well pre- 
pared, considering the shortness of the time of 
preparation. Much credit is due the Executive 
Committee for its action in starting the work 
of the society so promptly. Philo is vigorous- 
ly alive*. Plans are being formed for the reno- 
vation of the hall. During this school term Philo 
intends to make society life very intense and of 
the utmost value to every individual concerned. 

To the men of the new class we may state 
that the Philokosmian Literary Society is an or- 
ganization whose chief aim is the betterment 
and general development of every man at L. V. 
It is an organization where the young men of 
today are trained to be the leaders of tomorrow. 
There is always a welcome for everyone at its 
literary sessions. Men of good standing who 
wish to become members of the society may do 
so by communicating their desire to some mem- 
ber. 



KALO 

The Kalozetean Literary Society, according to 
all indications, has entered into the most success- 
ful year in its history. Kalos have returned 
from their summer vacation, full of hope and 
ambition, and jammed full of new ideas. The 
atmosphere in Kalo Hall is charged with pep 
and enthusiasm for the coming year and an 
active faith in our motto: "No Palms Without 
Dust," is being shown on every hand. 

The incoming student body is showing a mark- 
ed interest in literary work. We feel that this 
year should be a banner year for both societies. 
With such a stimulus we are looking eagerly for- 
ward to the bright prospects in view. 

Kalo, apart from the parliamentary and ora- 
torical training, aims for the development of 
the aesthetic nature of man, whether in litera- 
ture, drama, music or religion. But general 
political and social conditions and the welfare 
of our Alma Mater also lie close to the heart 
of every true Kalo. We cannot but feel pride 
in the fact that men of various religious faiths 
are to be found in our society, working together 
with a spirit of brotherly toleration for the bet- 
terment of Kalo, of our Alma Mater, and of 
mankind generally. 

The two snappy programmes thus far ren- 
dered portray the general character of our work, 
i his, however, does not include our joint ses- 



sions or special feature programmes. There 
is no doubt that our literary sessions will be both 
beneficial and of special interest to new men. 
We most cordially invite all men students to 
visit our hall any Friday evening. 

CLIO 



Cleo, Clio, 
Sis Boom Bah! 
Reo, Rio, 
Rah! rah! rah! 

Clio is looking forward this year to one of the 
most successful years she has ever known. 
1922-23, she believes, is going to mark a high 
line of achievement in her life, and she is will- 
ing to put into her work every bit of energy, 
enthusiasm and pep that can be mustered in a 
group of some fifty girls. 

Up to the present time Clio has rendered two 
programs. The first one, given on Sept. 22, in 
honor of the Freshmen girls, consisted of a for- 
mal program followed by a representation of a 
negro wedding. The latter part was presented 
witn much realism, especially where the "pahson" 
bid Chonians and guests to partake of the wed- 
ding feast. A social hour followed, in which the 
Chonians and the new girls became better ac- 
quainted. 

The second program was given on Sept. 29, 
in Clio Hall. A picture of the lives and cus- 
toms of the first inhabitants of our country, the 
Indians, was forcibly presented in an interest- 
ing, entertaining and instructive manner. The 
effectiveness of the program was enhanced by 
well planned costumes. 

The Clionian girls were well satisfied with their 
hrst efforts, and hope to play a vital part in 
the life of L. V. C. this year. They welcome 
all visitors to their meetings, held each Friday 
evening at seven o'clock in Clio Hall. 



DELPHIAN 



Dame Rumor reported that there is going to 
be an orchestra in L. V. C. this year. The Del- 
phians heard the news during the first week 
of school, just when they were planning to hold 
a party for the girls who are new students in 
our college. Immediately they decided to sched- 
ule this orchestra for its first engagement. 

As the night of the party drew near, worry 
and anxiety were written all over the faces of 
the Delphian members, for no one, as yet, had 
seen or heard a sign of an orchestra anywhere 
near here, not even in all Annville. At last, 
the girls held a conference, but everyone was of 
the same opinion: they could not give their en- 
tertainment without its special feature. Some- 
thing had to be done, and done quickly— but 
what? Well, the result of it all was that the 
party was held just as they had planned. An 
orchestra was there, too; not the college orches- 
tra, which still exists in the vast unknown, but 
the Delphian Orchestra. 

This new organization consisted of the fol- 
lowing seven members: the Misses Helen Hughes, 
Kathryn Kratzert, Rachel Heindel, Kathryn Bals- 
baugh, Susan Zeigler, Florence Seifried, and 
Isabelle Smith. They all wore blue and white 
uniforms, elaborately decorated with knives, 
forks, and spoons. The instruments were all tak- 
en from the chef's kitchen utensils. For that 
reason, they called themselves "The Kitchen Cabi- 



. .' '■ • . • . .! V!t . 

nfet Orchestra." The audience was well pleased 
with this musical band's first performance. 

Their program consisted of several orchestral 
selections and a few solos: Miss Balsbaugh'S 
"saw and butcher knife" violin solo was quite an 
achievement, as well as was Miss Seifried's ex- 
hibition of the "rolling pin" trombone. Between 
the various numbers the rest of the Delphians 
took part in extemporaneous speeches and cha- 
rades. The evening sped by rapidly, and both 
the old and tne new girls left the party feeling 
that they had been well entertained by the Del- 
phian Literary Society and its new orchestra. 



Y. W. C. A. 



On Sunday afternoon, September the twenty- 
fourth, a crowd of girls assembled in North 
Hall parlor for the purpose of attending the first 
Y. W . meeting of this new school year. 

The program was not lengthy and elaborate, 
but simple, short, and seriously effective. After 
the opening song, Scripture lesson, and prayer, 
Miss Delia flerr, president of the Y. W. C. A., 
talked to the girls in a sincere, friendly way, 
about the influence which their lives will have 
upon others during the coming year. She then 
read aloud the aims of the association and ex- 
tended a welcome to all the new girls. The two 
special numbers on the program were a vocal 
solo by Miss Mabel Silver and' a piano solo by 
Miss Ruth Baker. The meeting drew to a close 
as the girls all joined in singing that beautiful, 
inspiring song, "Follow the Gleam." 

The Cabinet of the Y. W. C. A. entertained 
the 'new students at a tea on the twenty-first of 
September. Although the guests were dressed in 
a rather striking manner — due to the commands 
of the exacting Sophomores — the peculiarities of 
their costumes did not hinder the enjoyment of 
the hour. Even their unusual actions— also the 
results of Sophomore discipline — were overlooked, 
and everyone, including the wives of the Fac- 
ulty, the Cabinet, and the Freshmen girls, spent 
a pleasant afternoon together. 

After the Freshmen had been greeted by the 
members of the Cabinet and introduced to the 
Faculty's wives, a short program was given in 
their honor. At the close of Miss Herr's wel- 
come address, Miss Mae Reeves gave one of her 
always entertaining readings. This was followed 
by an exceptionally good solo by Miss Dorothy 
Sholly. Another fine reading by Miss Kathryn 
Kratzert concluded the program. Tea was then 
served, and the rest of the time was spent in 
a delightful social hour. 



Y. M. C. A. 



The Y. M. C. A. has started the year with a 
bang! There is no doubt that with the well- 
trained and efficient members of the cabinet and 
co-operation on the part of every "Y" man, this 
year will be the most eventful and most success- 
ful of all years since the Y. M. C. A. was first 
organized at L. V. C. 

Mr. Boyer, president of the Y. M., has proved 
his ability as a leader and organizer by the way 
he put the "bang" into the first Y. M. outing of 
the year,, a Fox Chase. He has instituted the 
group system, which will add to the interest of 
the programme for the vear. The three groups, 
as they were arranged for the Fox Chase, will 



remain so arranged for the remainder of the 
term. 

The programme includes various athletic events 
such as tennis, basketball, volley ball and quoit 
tournaments, in which teams representing the 
three groups will compete. The group having 
the most games to its credit will receive as a 
prize a silver shield which will be placed in the 
"Y" room. 

Besides the athletic programme, special empha- 
sis will be laid upon the religious side of the 
student's life. Prayer meetings will be held 
weekly. Once every month a special Men's Meet- 
ing will be held, when prominent men from all 
walks of life and from various parts of the 
United States will speak. 

The weekly prayer meetings and monthly Men's 
Meetings will be so highly educational and so 
greatly helpful that no man can possibly afford 
to miss them. Then, too, the attendance at these 
meetings will either add to or detract from the 
credit of the groups when the Merit Shield is 
awarded. 

Help your group along — come to every meet- 
ing! . Give your best to the group to which you 
belong! 



THE Y. M. C. A. FOX CHASE 



Did you ever see a pan of pop-corn on a good 
hot stove? Did you notice how the whole mass 
just heaves and tumbles as each grain explodes? 
If you did, you couldn't help but think of it as 
you watched the crowd of 100 fellows gathered 
on the campus on the evening of Sept. 21. We 
were all "a-poppin" with enthusiasm and eager- 
ness to get a good start on the fox. We were 
divided into three groups captained by "Birdie" 
Renn, Edgar Whistler and Guy Faust respective- 
ly. The fox was "released" at 6:30 o'clock, and 
we were told that he would drop bits of paper 
at regular intervals, so that we could trail him; 
the group that first discovered the fox would be 
given a prize. We gave him a ten minute start 
and then each "pack" set out to pick up the 
trail. Each group set out in a different direc- 
tion, and each was equally certain that they 
were on the right "scent". In due time the be- 
ginning of the trail was discovered and all three 
groups were hot in pursuit. Leading us through 
a maze of byways and tangled brush near the 
"Quittie" the trail finally ended near Lover's 
Leap so we knew that the fox must be in hiding 
somewhere near. Flashlights were busy every- 
where searching out every bush, tree or pile of 
rock, while calls for "Number One's", "Number 
Two's" or "Number Three's" were constantly 
heard. It was a member of the "Number Three 
pack" who finally discovered the fox. The prize, 
until then kept secret, was found to be a five- 
pound box of chocolates. It was soon distributed 
among the "threes" while a roaring fire was 
built to start the program for the evening. Mr. 
Boyer, the president of the "Y", gave us a short 
talk, after which a series of contests was held. 
The first was a group song, next a reading by a 
member of each group, and the third contest a 
vocal solo by one of each group. Professors 
Gingrich and Bender, who were present, acted as 
judges, and awarded first place to Group Two 
in the group song, to Group Three in the read- 
ing, and to Group One in the vocal solo. 

Next in order were the eats. Quite a num- 
ber of the fellows had noticed a keg in the back- 



/ 



ground, and this was now brought forward. It 
was the famous "cider barrel". Everybody soon fell 
in line and as we passed the "feeding station" 
each one was handed a portion of cheese, pretz- 
els, cakes, and a cup of cider. Of course there 
were seconds for each while the keg was being 
constantly tapped. Songs were rendered by the 
various groups to keep everybody interested. Al- 
most too soon, it seemed, the fire — and eats too — 
had faded, and we decided to return to the Dorm. 
Upon reaching Main Street we formed a long 
line, single file, and proceeded to let the town 
know that the "Y" was just returning from a 
jolly good time. An "Alma Mater" on the square 
and a serenade to the girls of South and North 
Halls ended the evening's hike, and a well satis- 
fied "pack" returned to the Dorm. 



SENIOR HIKE 



It was just the kind of a night for a hike, 
warm, a yellow moon and a starlit sky. The 
Seniors, with all the dignity assumed after three 
years at Lebanon Valley, met at North Hall and 
hiked to Kauffman's church. . 

A delightful spot was chosen in the woods near 
by, and the gallants soon had a -roaring fire. 
Every one gathered around the blazing logs and 
roasted "doggies", which, when hot, were smug- 
gled into buttered rolls and eaten with relish. 
Next in order were the toasted marshmallows, 
which, placed between butterthin.s almost melt- 
ed in one's mouth. Needless to sayV every mem- 
ber of '23 heartily participated in this enjoy- 
ment. 

Mr. Boyer entertained us very cleverly by re- 
viewing the history of the class, and prophesied 
for '23 a brilliant future. Then the singing of 
college songs made the woods ring. 

The same "pep" and enthusiasm characterize 
the class of '23 as in the old days. We all real- 
ized that it was the last time our class would 
enjoy a hike together. 

Under the charming chaperonage of Profes- 
sor and Mrs. Grimm and "Coach" Hollinger the 
Seniors wended their way homeward from the 
last hike. 



JUNIOR HIKE 



The Class of Twenty-four held the annual 
Junior Class hike on Wednesday, Sept. 27th. At 
seven o'clock the girls of the class led the way 
up Main street in a snake dance. The boys fol- 
lowed, each bearing a diminutive watermelon. 

Arriving at Bachman's Woods, the objective, a 
fire was built and a brisk and snappy program 
was carried out. After the program the water- 
melons and marshmallows were the centre of 
attraction. They didn't last long! 

Professor T. Bayard Beatty gave a few remi- 
niscences of his recent European tour. They were 
listened to with far greater attention than the 
professor ever received in his class room. 

Eventually Junior dignity and Junior cares 
were cast to the winds and Junior boys and girls 
all harked back to childhood days via "Three 
Deep," "Drop the Handkerchief," "Truth or Con- 
sequences," and "Farmer in the Dell." The in- 
evitable "sing" of college and popular songs 
around the dying fire followed. The moon and 
the Juniors did the rest, but we cannot give ex- 
act details. 



THE SOPHOMORE HIKE 



After much discussion as to whether the an- 
nouncement in chapel meant the Frosh or Soph 
Class Hike, the "Sophs" decided to have their 
outing Monday evening, September the twenty- 
lifth. The "eats" were all taken out to a tea 
house near Killinger's Meadow, in order to evade 
searching freshmen. After supper about an 
hour was spent in following groups of freshmen 
to discover whether they were also planning to 
hike. As seven o'clock drew near, crowds of 
Sophs could be seen wending their way toward 
the bridge at the end of town. -As soon as the 
chaperons, Professors Bender and Hollinger and 
Professor and Mrs. Gingrich, arrived, they all 
set out, a lively crowd, ready for whatever might 
happen as the evening progressed . 

Walking along the pike, they soon came to the 
second bridge and turned to the left along the 
creek. It seemed to be a .place just made for 
the end of a hike, with a spring near by and 
the moon making a silvery path across the creek. 
The boys gathered wood and made a fire, and 
everybody was getting ready to roast the first 
"dogs" when some one cried that the freshmen 
boys were coming. 

In a moment down they rushed, seeming many 
more at first than there really were. They de- 
manded the "eats", but they had disappeared as 
soon as the first signal was given. The girls 
grabbed the lemonade bucket and stood around 
it, attempting to avoid suspicion, the "doggies" 
found a cool resting place in the creek, but what 
had become of Weik with the rolls? Surely, he 
had gone up along the creek, in which direction the 
freshmen boys were now searching. Would they 
get him and thus have the satisfaction of having 
taken some of our things? No, they are re- 
turning, but with nothing. After some more 
scrapping, into which, even the girls entered, as 
a certain freshman boy who landed in the creek 
will testify, and after trying to tear the fire 
apart, they finally went away, a forsaken-looking 
crowd. 

After it was a sure thing that they had gone, 
things were gathered together, the "doggies" 
taken from the creek, which did not hurt them 
at all, and soon Weik came up, soaking wet be- 
cause he had been lying in the creek while the 
freshmen boys were near him, but carrying the 
buns intact. Now the party really began. While 
eating, the freshmen boys were much talked of, 
and were the cause of lots of fun. 

A short impromptu program was then given, as 
follows: Speeches by Professor Bender, Profes- 
sor and Mrs. Gingrich and "Jo" Hollinger, songs 
by first the boys and then the girls, several read- 
ings and jokes by any member of the party, fol- 
lowed by school songs and yells ending with the 
Alma Mater. The hikers then started home, sing- 
ing and cheering as they went. After giving 
several sophomore yells on the campus, the girls 
went to their rooms and to bed, while the boys 
started searching over campus and "dorm" to 
find something or other to sleep on. 

Everybody declared they had the best time ever, 
even though the freshmen did try to break up 
the hike, but only succeeded in giving excitement 
to the Sophomores.

Greiner, '24— "Husband."

THE FRESHMAN HIKE 



On Wednesday evening, September 21, the 
Freshmen, according to the annual custom, took 
their hike. Since none of them were hungry that 
evening, they did not appear in the dining-room 
at supper time, but strolled about the town in 
groups Towards seven o'clock, the time appoint- 
ed to meet at the east end of Maple street, the 
Freshmen had an exciting time getting assembled. 
After seeking refuge in the homes of kind 
friends and prowling through corn fields to es- 
cape detection by the Sophomores, who were 
scouting around, the Freshmen at last got to- 
gether, ready to start, soon after seven o'clock. 

It was as perfect a moonlight night as one 
could wish to take a hike, and they had a 
very pleasant hike to a pretty spot in a woods 
about three miles northeast of Annville. Here 
tne boys gathered wood and built a fire for 
roasting "doggies" and toasting marshmallows. 
Sitting around the fire and eating sandwiches, 
pretzels and marshmallows, the Freshmen got 
much better acquainted with their classmates 
than they had previously. That is one of the 
main purposes of a Freshman hike, that the 
Freshmen may get to know and like each other 
as soon as possible. 

Later there was a short extemporaneous pro- 
gram, a reading, "Between Two Loves," by one 
of the girls, and a quartette of the boys sang 
"In the Evening by the Moonlight," and the class 
sang a number of songs. 

After hiking home in the moonlight the 
Freshies arrived at their dormitories about half- 
past ten, and the boys, we have reason to be- 
lieve, got a warm reception. Though a trifle 
tired and dusty, after their hike, the Freshmen 
all agreed that they had had a most enjoyable 
evening, and were looking forward with pleasure 
to other hikes which they hope to take in the 
future. 



1922 FOOTBALL PROSPECTS 



Second formation— right— 5, 28, 41,-13, 26— 
the ball is snapped — the full-back goes thru 
tackle for an eight yard gain — that's knocking 
them for a row, boys — only two more yards to 
go! The old "pigskin" is again being carried, 
passed, and kicked up and down the gridiron. 
The season for the greatest of all American 
academic games is in full sway — the boys have 
donned the moleskins and are fighting to defend 
the traditions and make history for their re- 
spective Alma Maters upon the gridiron. 

What are Lebanon Valley's prospects for the 
season of 1922 ? A Philadelphia paper stated 
recently that "Lebanon Valley, with Army, 
Georgetown, and Penn State scheduled for suc- 
cessive Saturdays, had a trio before them that 
would test the strength of the best teams in the 
country." True, that is a big proposition to 
back up against, but the prospects are bright, 
and we are going to put up some hard fights. 
Remember that last year we held Georgetown to 
a 7-0 score and that this year, with all of last 
year's letter men back excepting "Nuts" Homan 
and Fake, we have practically the same squad 
from which to build up a team. With the experi- 
ence gained from last year we are going to give a 
good account of ourselves. 

A week before school began, Captain Ferd. 
Beck issued a call to about twenty-five men to 



report for preliminary practice. This group, 
composed of last year's men and some new can- 
didates who looked like contenders for regular 
bertns, went to Mt. Gretna to begin training, 
'mere they lived in tents and had daily practice 
to work out the stiffness that had accumulated 
during the summer months. After a week of 
this outdoor life and practice, it was time for 
tne opening of school and they returned, to be- 
gin practice on the home field. 

This squad of huskies was soon increased by 
the addition of a bunch of last year's scrub 
players and some new men. Now there are about 
hf'ty candidates reporting daily to Coach Wilder. 
After the squad had gone through a few days 
practice, an invitation was received to scrimmage 
with the University of Penn's squad that was 
training at Mt. Gretna. It was accepted, and 
the results were better than expected, for we 
held them in fine style. A second scrimmage 
took place with Penn the latter part of the first 
week of school, and again we made a good show- 
ing. 

Our team received a blow when Captain Beck 
had a bone in his left hand broken during the 
scrimmage with Penn. That puts him out of 
the game for a while, and the team will miss him. 
However, we are hoping to see "Ferdie" back 
in the line-up in time for the Penn State game. 

At the time of this writing, the team is on 
its way to the Army. Let's take a look at the 
bunch. "Jerry" Frock, a new man who is ex- 
pected to fill the hole made by the absence of 
"Bull" Behman, who was one of the mainstays 
of the team for three seasons, is showing fine 
form, and is surely an exceptional center. Frock 
and Beahm, who will no doubt play full-back, 
are expected to back up the line in great style. 
With Captain Beck on the injured list, his posi- 
tion as guard will very likely be filled by Mus- 
ser, who held down the center position last year. 
"Fat" Lauster is again showing his old time pep 
and fighting spirit at guard. "Eddie" Whistler 
is sure of his berth at tackle again, and we all 
know what "Eddie" can do. "Joe" Danker looks 
good for the tackle. Renn, Burtner, Rupp, and 
Herb are showing very good form, and are sure 
of getting into the game. With this gang of 
huskies rounded off by Clarkin, Herlman or 
Snavely at ends, Lebanon Valley has a line-up 
that is stronger than it has been for some time. 
The backfield, though not heavy, is showing the 
necessary speed. "Hennie" Homan is again call- 
ing signals, and we all know the ability "Hennie" 
possesses. "Zeke" Perry will also get in as quar- 
terback. With-"Bill" Wolfe, "Dick" Smith, "Bill" 
Wueschinski, and Porte Wolfe to pick from for 
the half-backs and "Chief" Metoxin and Beahm 
for full-backs, we will have a back-field that is 
going to show some exceptional scoring ability. 

With a team like that, we are looking forward 
to a successful season for Lebanon Valley. When 
we play teams in our class the results are bound 
to be in favor of our own Alma Mater. Let's get 
back of the team and give it our support. When 
the team plays at home we must show them that 
we are back of them. Without the students to 
cheer and back them up the team cannot show 
any fight. So let's turn out 100 per cent strong 
and make the air ring with cheers for the boys. 
That is what Lebanon Valley has lacked for 
some time — organized cheering at the games. 
Here's hoping that we will have some real cheer- 
ing m evidence this year. 



Lebanon Valley's 1922 football schedule is as 
follows: 

Sept. 30- — West Point Military Academy at West 
Point, N. Y. 

Oct. 7 — Georgetown University at Washington, D. C. 

Oct. 14 — Penn State at State College. 

Oct. 2i — St. Joseph's College at Annville. 

Oct. 28 — Washington College at Harrisburg. - 

JNov. 4 — Juniata at Lebanon. 

Nov. 11 — Susquehanna University at Lebanon. 

Nov. 18 — Lehigh University at Bethlehem. 

Nov. 25 — Gettysburg College at Gettysburg. 

It can be seen that Manager "Nig" Faust has 
arranged a strong schedule for his team, but he 
is conhdent that tne team is equal to the occasion. 
We are quite sure of that ourselves. It's up to 
us, though, to give tne team our support. Here's 
to a successful season for the defenders of the 
traditions of our Alma Mater upon the gridiron. 



SCRUB DOPE 



Lebanon Valley scrubs played Lebanon High 
School on their home field on Saturday, Sept. 23. 
Lebanon High, with a team that has been play- 
ing together for several years, succeeded in 
scoring two touchdowns against the scrubs. That 
is not to be looked upon as a bad defeat, for 
most of the players on our scrub "eleven" are 
new to Lebanon Valley's system. With more 
practice and experience we are looking forward 
:o some victories for the scrubs. 

The scrubs have been doing splendid work this 
year in helping to round out the "Varsity" and 
get it in shape for a tough schedule. There is 
some promising talent on the scrub squad, and 
we are glad to see so many candidates out for 
the team. Let's get the old fight back, boy a 
The scrubs had a good season last year, consid- 
ering the teams they were bucked up against. 
With the new material available, the scrubs are 
bound to show the teams of their class how to 
put the old pigskin over the line. 



LEBANON VALLEY HOLDS ARMY TO 12-0 
SCORE 



Lebanon Valley opened the football season on 
Saturday, September thirtieth, by holding the 
strong West Point team to two touchdowns on 
the Army's home field! The cadets had a hard 
time "putting it over" on the Pennsylvania team. 
Although outweighed, our men gave them strong 
opposition, and our defense was pierced for only 
two touchdowns, which came in the second and 
third quarters. If Captain Beck had been in the 
line-up to do the punting, the score might have 
run to a different tune. The captain is on the 
injured list, and consequently our team lacked 
a good punter and was handicapped. Danker 
and Wueschinski featured for Lebanon Valley, 
while Gillmore and Lawrence were the brilliants 
on the Army eleven. 

Lebanon Valley can well feel proud of the re- 
sults of the first contest against a team which 
has been selected from the best athletes of the 
land. The boys did fine work, and we are look- 
ing forward to the Georgetown game with great 
eagerness. We made a good start, and we can 
feel confident that this season will be a success- 
ful one. 

, Let's keep up the pep and pile up a bunch of 
victories for Lebanon Valley!

A YANKEE ABROAD 

During the summer four Yankees boarded an 
ocean liner to be gone ninety days to see the 
world first hand. Some fifteen hundred miles 
were traveled and for ninety days the quartette 
"stuck" closer than some brothers, only to be 
scattered by the school year, one to the East, one 
to the Northwest, while two remain under L. V.'s 
roof -tree, one of whom tells this tale: 

Sea travel today is not as our Irving would 
have us believe, one vast isolation, for we were 
ever in touch with both shores, the Aquitania's 
daily "Bulletin" giving us the wireless news. 
There were moving pictures free of charge, home 
talent concerts, three orchestras, a brass band, 
races, boxing matches, games, social luncheons, 
teas, and on Sunday two religious services. Such 
is the life aboard ship today, and eighteen glori- 
ous meals may be eaten and retained instead of 
the dread sickness thru which all are said to 
pass hoping the while to die. 

But still time palls, and after five and a half 
days of water, sea brine, indigo, silver sheen, 
sunset rouge, gulf stream and sea weed, one's 
respect for Columbus mounts sky high. Indeed, 
Columbus' stock went away above par! 

When look! away to the right appears a misty 
ridge! Is it smoke or distant hills? The glasses 
quickly! All is bustle on star board, conjecture, 
question, absurd surmisings till at length all 
say The Channel Islands, and is that Guernsey, 
the Guernsey where once Victor Hugo lived? 
Then appear other peaks, light houses, cliffs, 
crazy-quilt patches of golden grain, vineyards, 
woodland and meadow — France, glorious France is 
before us! Then up looms the story of the Great 
War, torn France, Reparations, Submarines, 
Mines, our Marines and our Dough Boys, the 
Lusitania, our Aquitania's sister ship — now six 
fathoms deep with Elbert Hubbard and his 
"Frau". Well, you swallow, one knows not 
what. A lump, a speck of dust, a memory? No; 
a feeling, a welling emotion — a joy to be nearer 
land horizontally than vertically, and this is the 
land of La Fayette, The Bastile, Joan of Arc, 
Rheims Cathedral, Versailles, and Paris all this 
and much, much more made up that first great 
thrill three thousand miles from home. 

In Arthur's Land 

Was there an Arthur? No longer does this 
Yankee doubt. For there is his round table, 
hanging high in the Great Hall of Winchester. 
This huge table is of oaken plank, eighteen feet 
in diameter, divided into twenty-five compart- 
ments for the king and his twenty-four knights, 
on each section appearing the name of the 
knight. At the back of the table are twelve 
holes to receive tenons or legs, and traces of a 
central support may be seen. In 1485 Caxton 
.mentions this table as proof of the existence of 
King: Arthur. We learn that it was hanging 
here as early as 1378, and was regarded even 
then as of ancient date. In Winchester Castle, 
of which The Great Hall was a part, lived King 
Henry VII that his heir might be born in the 
traditional residence of King Arthur. Thus we 
learn that those nearer Arthur's time than we 
doubt him not, then why should I presume to 
know ? 

But not satisfied with seeing the top of "The 
Table Round" the traditional King Arthur's Lake 



was sought out and through an approaching 
storm that might have daunted less determined 
Yanks we plodded up the mountain-like slope, 
passing in our ascent peat beds telling of a vege- 
tation now extinct. When lo! before us stretched 
the Dogmare Pool into which King Arthur had 
Sir Bedevere throw Excaliber. Here were the 
reeds in which he thought to hide the priceless 
gem. True, the lake was not a sea, but neither 
would we call it a pool. It was great enough 
to receive King Arthur's sacred sword and when 
wooded as doubtless it was in Saxon days, no 
more fitting spot could have been found, for 
high on the Cornish Downs it lies almost in the 
clouds. 

But once again before we left King Arthur's 
Land were we to see sights strange and walk 
where once the great king trod. In Tintagel by 
the Cornish Sea, where billows ever beat, there 
may be seen huge piles of shapely stone with 
here and there a port hole, buttress and rampart 
cap while ancient gates, huge and vast, prevent 
the entrance of the careless guest. Here, then, 
by the Western Sea Arthur and his legions met 
and in conclave did right the wrong and organize 
to fight the Dane from out fair Britain's shores. 
Was there an Arthur? Never doubt it more, 
for who but Arthur could have reared these 
walls on fair Devon's shores? And to walk 
where Guinevere and lordly Launcelot once pon- 
dered on their crime, or to sit dreaming with Sir 
Galahad as gazing out to sea he caught the vi- 
sion of his future quest — all this and much beside 
came flooding in till who could tell whether we 
trod on earth or air! Great, indeed, is the joy 
of realizing one's ideal, and hence the second 
thrill! 

ONE OF FOUR BUT NOT MARK TWAIN. 



LECTURE-RECITAL 



Sir Edward Baxter Perry, world-famed blind 
musician and composer, gave his first Lecture- 
Recital as a member of the faculty of the Engle 
Conservatory of Music, Lebanon Valley College, 
on Friday evening, October the sixth, before a 
large and appreciative audience. 

Sir Edward won the hearts of his audience 
immediately, by his dignified, masterly lectures 
upon the origin of masterpieces of Liszt and 
Chopin. 

As a student of Liszt he was able to bring to 
his audience the very spirit and inspiration which 
prompted the great musician to produce his im- 
mortal compositions. 

^ A «™ , com P° ser himself, Sir Edward produced 
the Melusme Suite", which is winning so much 
lavor among musicians and true artists everv- 
where. 

The college and the community at Iar^e are 
looking forward to other lecture recitals that Sir 
Ldward Baxter Perry has in store for them. It 
is with pleasure as well as with a sense of pride 
that we welcome him to Lebanon Valley College

THE MATCH FACTORY 



What is there to do on Saturday night for stu- 
dents at L. V. ? This is verily the dullest night of 
each week, and it persists in coming every week. 
There are no literary societies to take up the even- 
ing hours, and surely to study is beyond possi- 
bility. To go to Lebanon and take in a show 
or two is perfectly all right to those who have 
the money and feel that such a program is essen- 
tial to college life. But to the majority of the 
students at L. V., what is there to do on Sat- 
urday evening? 

When on Oct. 12, at the Students' Hour in 
Shapel, was announced the organization of a 
Match Factory at L. V. C, to begin operations 
>n the following evening, who among us did not 
'eel that such an institution was absolutely un- 
called for? In fact, did we not unconsciously 
ay to ourselves that its existence would be a 
sort of silent slam against each one of us, since 
it seemed to suggest that we were not capable 
of making friendships with the opposite sex with- 
out assistance? At first thought, the Match 
Factory proposition was not very enthusiastically 
received by most of the students. 

And yet, when we stepped into the Match 
Factory on Saturday evening and when we saw 
comradeship springing up between the boys and 
girls of L. V. C, we experienced a revolution of 
pur thought. At last, we silently exclaimed, we 
nave something which might overcome a great 
lack of our college life. And we asked our- 
selves, how many boys have not wished to num- 
ber some of the girls among their best friends, 
and how many girls have not wished to confide 
and exchange thoughts with some of the boys ? 

For, glancing over the course of a student's life 



at Lebanon Valley College, when and where has 
he an opportunity to develop friendships with 
those of the opposite sex in a spirit of comrade- 
ship ? True, there is the twosing on Wednesdays 
and Sundays, but that is a custom indulged in 
only by those who wish to be branded as being 
"married". Moreover, on other days studies and 
the honor system keep the boys and girls sep- 
arated, except insofar as religious activities bring 
them together. Where there are persons of such 
different religions as at L. V. it is almost impos- 
sible for two of different faiths to discover one 
another. 

But now comes the proposition to have the 
girls and boys meet every Saturday evening, the 
evening when nothing is going on, and enjoy 
merry companionship together. There is to be 
no formality such as is observed during the joint 
sessions of the literary societies. The main ob- 
ject is the whiling away of the deadest part of 
the week in jolly companionship and merry- 
making, attended by the birth and growth of 
pleasant comradeship and friendship. 

The Y. M. and Y. W., in instituting the Match 
Factory, have thus created a situation which 
promises to increase very greatly the social life 
of our college. Boys and girls have a chance 
to meet each other and in informal discussions 
and in the playing of games develop the spirit 
of comradeship and fellowship that has been so 
noticeably lacking in the past. To the Y. M. 
and the Y. W. belong the heartiest co-operation 
and support of every member of the student body. 

The situation is this: Comradeship between 
the girls and boys has heretofore been lacking; 
now, an opportunity is given each student to sat- 
isfy one of his heart's greatest needs. Will you 
miss such an opportunity?

A MESSAGE TO THE BOYS OF AMERICA 



The thirty-four million boys of India, the forty 
million of China and the ten million of Korea 
and Japan all send greetings to the boys of 
America. Boys by the million of every color 
of race and creed look to America as the land 
of the free, and crave fellowship with boys who 
have so many opportunities and privileges. 

Howard Arnold Walter, the Princeton hero, 
who gave his life for the boys of India, said: 
"I would be true, for there are those who trust 
me, 

I would be pure, for there are those who care; 
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer; 

I would be brave, for there is much to dare; 
I would be friend to all the poor and friendless; 

I would be giver and forget the gift; 
I would be humble, for I know my weakness, 

I would look up and love and laugh and lift." 



THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION 



The Department of Education of Lebanon Val- 
ley College has been considerably enlarged this 
year in order to meet both the letter and the 
spirit of -the new requirements which the State 
Council on Education has prescribed for the Col- 
!.;gc Graduate's Teacher's Certificate. The grad- 
uating- class of la^r, year needed only twelve 
semester hours credits in education for a certifi- 
cate, *snd '-no required subjects were specified. 
This year's class must have eighteen semester 
hours of professional training, and this must in- 
clude three semester nours of Introduction to 
Teaching, three of Educational Psychology, and 
six of Practice Teaching. Every Senior who de- 
sires to secure, this certificate has had an oppor- 
tunity to arrange for courses which will fully 
meet this requirement. 

Such has been and is, the immediate aim of this 
department. The head of the department has 
made it clear, however, that his aims and hopes 
for the department go beyond that of merely 
meeting the new state requirements for certifica- 
tion of teachers. It is felt that in the not dis- 
tant future the department will grow into two: 
the Department of Education and the Depart- 
ment of Psychology. This expectation is based 
upon a faith in the growth (1) of the college, 
(2) of the demand for teachers and the desire 
to prepare for educational work as a life career, 
and (3) the spirit of professionalism amongst 
teachers, which will lead those who look forward 
to the profession of education to demand a prep- 
aration that will go far beyond that required by 
any State. 

Furthermore, it is predicted that the time is 
coming when American colleges will no longer be 
content to give all the psychology they have to 
give in two or three , semester hours, as in the 
past. Already the educational materials for a 
full-fledged Department of Psychology are avail- 
able. We are accustomed to take for granted 
strong college departments of Biology, Physics 
and Chemistry, with laboratories and apparatus, 
and well-trained instructors in charge. Far be 
it from anyone who believes in education to at- 
tempt to detract one iota from the esteem in 
which these departments of science are held. Yet 
it is probably true, as a matter of fact, that 
there are many more persons ..whose , success in 



their daily work depends upon their knowledge I 
of the laws of human behaviour and ability to 1 
work with human materials, than there are of 1 
those whose success depends upon their know- j 
ledge of Biology, Physics and Chemistry. There 
is a growing appreciation of the value of the 
study of Psychology in the education of those ' 
who are to be leaders of men, whether in the 
ministry, in law or medicine, in education or 
journalism, in commerce or industry. Should we 
not covet for our college a position of leadership 
as being one of the first to develop a real depart- 
ment of Psychology with the space, the equip- I 
ment, and the personnel necessary to offer a ' 
worth-while "major" sequence of studies in P.sy-, 
chology. 

It has been suggested that by continuing the 
hall-partitions through the space known, as , the 
"art department", two rooms would be formed, 
one facing the front of the building, the other . 
having a view out over the campus. The for- * 
mer would be well adapted to the purposes of a 
psychological laboratory, while the latter would 
meet the need for a classroom for courses in 
Education and Psychology. Adjoining the class- 
room is the small room known as "number 29", 
which would be well adapted for use as an offiee 
and conference room, and place of meeting for 
small, advanced elective courses. The head of 
the department hopes that some friend of the 
college will come forward to provide the furnish- 
ings and equipment needed. A modest sum 
would render an incalculable service ahd at" the 
same time create an enduring memorial.

MODERN FABLE 



The early morning sun shone down upon a 
road. The road was beautiful and sunny, and a 
crowd of happy people journeyed upon it. Among 
tnem was a young man with the flush of youth 
on his cheek and the light of ambition in his 
eyes. As he hurried on he did not mingle with 
taose around him, but hastened on alone. 

The afternoon sun beat upon the road, and the 
man was tired and worn, and as he came to a 
rough hill he would fain have rested, but he 
raised his eyes and, lo! he beheld a beautiful 
mansion there, sparkling in the sunlight, and he 
said: "I will press on and rest when I have 
reached the summit of the hill," and he pressed 
on. Then, as he toiled up the hillside, the sun 
sank low in the west. He was alone upon the 
way. He did not see the flowers or trees or 
beautiful skies, he saw only the glorious struc- 
ture on the mountain-top. 

At last, as the sun was casting its last long 
rays over the earth, he raised his eyes, and the 
building danced with a thousand beautiful colors 
and shades, and lo! he was at the very gates. 
He ran forward thru the golden portals in the 
wide hall, and over it he saw this inscription: 
FAME. He entered the temple, but no one came 
to greet him, and it was cold. He bowed his 
gray head upon his hands and remembered the 
people and the flowers he had passed. He turned 
and rushed out, but the gates were closed and 
the sun had set. 

CYNTHIA DRUMMOND, '24. 



A FABLE 



Once upon a time there lived, in a crevice of 
the wall in the pantry, just behind the egg bas- 
ket, a frisking family of mice. They were sleek 
and well fed, for they lived in the region of good 
things to eat, and never had anything about 
which to complain. There were five of them, 
mother and father mouse and the three children. 
Now father mouse never bothered much about 
teaching the children, so the burden of the task 
fell upon mother mouse. She had seen quite a 
good deal of the world, and had even been in an 
adventure with the house cat just outside the 
pantry door. Naturally, she bestowed much of 
her worldly wisdom upon her three sons. She 
dealt mostly with the dangers of mouse-traps 
and house-cats to mouse civilization, so her chil- 
dren might grow up to profit by the experiences 
of less favored mice. 

But little Timothy Mouse felt that his mother 
was foolish and silly about being careful. He 
didn't see why she should spend so much time 
worrying about silly old mouse-traps. So one 
day he went out to play as usual, and he went 
Just a little bit further than he had ever gone 
before, just to the door of the pantry. It was 
ajar, and, being adventurous, he was anxious to 
see what lay on the other side. Slowly and cau- 
tiously he peeked out, his little, bead-like eyes 
staring at all the wonders of the outside world 
V7l ? en — thud! He uttered one little "squeak". An- 
other little mouse met his doom because he didn't 
"sten to his mother.

A STREET CAR MONOLOGUE 

When riding to Harrisburg on a street car, I 
happened to be sitting benma a tyical, fat .Penn- 
sylvania German woman, whom I heard take 
part, loudly, in a most interesting conversation: 
"Ve Gehts, Jimma! Awful glad to see you, ain't 
seen you for a wnile back. J S this your girl? 
Well, now, ain't she big? And you have an- 
other baby! Ach my! How time flies. I remem- 
ber when you was just a little thing, only this 
high. Who does the baby favor, her pop or you ? 
Blue eyes you say she has? Where'd she get 
'em from? Did your mom have blue eyes? No? 
Vell, v now, ain't that funny! 

"Say, Emma, do you mind the receipt of the 
weddm' cake your mom made when you were 
married? Six eggs does it take? Why I never 
use more'n four. Cream, did v u say? Ach, 
now; it didn't taste like there was cream in it. 

"O's this your stop? Goodby, come onct and 
see me and John. No, he ain't no better. He 
got the rheumatiz awful yet. Goodby!" 

"Veil now, here comes Kate. Hello there, 
Kate. How'd you get home last night? Did 
the rain spoil your new silk? We got right in 
it. No my dress didn't spot. Ain't we been 
having a lot of rain this while past? Looks 
like rain now again. Ach, well, for me it don't 
matter if I do get in it, my dress you can wash. 

"You say Jim Shendle peddled strawberries 
last night already? Ach he always wants to be 
so smart, always out peddlin' before anybody 
else. 

"Did I have luck with my chickens? Ach no, 
they got gaps for me, and went right away 
dead. 

"No, I ain't goin' to the picnic. Don't know 
who to get to haul me home. John's got to go 
to town to the farm show, so he can't go. 

"Was you at Mary's funeral? Yes, she was 
laid out nice. I'd like to be laid out like that. 
Yes, it's too bad she died, but you mind she took 
her bed Sundays, and I always said that's a bad 
sign. 

"Veil, now here I get off. Good-bye."

Y. W. C. A. ANNIVERSARY 



Plans are being made by the Y. W. C. A. at 
Lebanon Valley College to have a special program 
on Sunday, November the fifth, in order to com- 
memorate the fiftieth anniversary of the found- 
ing of that organization. 

All of the committees of the Association are 
working hard to make the Y. W. C. A. a most 
vital part of the lives of each girl at L. V. C. 
The Social Committee in conjunction with the 
same committee of the Y. M. C. A. has planned 
for the carrying out of the well known "Match 
Factory" system of which we hear so much. 

The membership committee has succeeded in 
enlisting many of the new girls into the ranks 
of the Y., and from all evidences this will be a 
banner year for the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A.'s of 
L. V. C.

Canton crepe and carried chrysanthemums of 
like color. The flower boys scattered pink roses

burg, Pennsylvania, announce the birth of a son,

A SONNET 



Sometimes when I am sad and tired of life, 

And I can't reach my goals, though I've tried, 
When everything I've done seems all so rife, 

I wander 'cross the hills so beautified. 
Oft' resting by the marge of some bright stream, 

And gazing far into the sky's deep blue, 
I watch the clouds that mystic, lovely seem, 

And wish that I were sailing with them, too. 
But then I think if that could e'er be true, 

I wouldn't have a worthwhile thing to do — 
No friends to love, no joys or sorrows share, 

No one to help along life's thoroughfare; 
So I'll just be contented where I am, 

Striving to live my best for God and man. 

K. H. N. '25. 



Activities 



CLIO 

"Come, see what the Owl of Ninerva has for 
you!" 

Thus were Clionians greeted on the night of 
October 13th, 1922, at Clio Hall. The twenty- 
five members-elect of Clio were given their first 
degree amid great solemnity. A most interest- 
ing Puritan program followed. The numbers are 
quoted: 

Devotional Exercises Chaplain 

What Is a Puritan? Eleanor Shaeffer 

Piano Solo Delia Herr 

Puritanism Literature, and War Ellen Keller 

Song Society 

New Puritanism Elizabeth Hopple 

Reading and Tableaux from "Miles Standish" 

Reader Edna Baker 

Performers in Tableaux — Esther Hughes, Madie 
Shoop, Martha Schach. 

The program was one of the best given this 
year. Everyone was well-prepared. The tableaux 
were especially entertaining. Miss Hughes was 
cast as John, Miss Shoop as Miles Standish, and 
Miss Schach as Priscilla. Even with the modern 
clothes donned by the cast, and the modern stage 
equipment used, Miss Baker and her trio man- 
aged to give the Clionians the quaint Puritan 
atmosphere. Clio was adjourned amid great ap- 
plause! 



account of the joint session between the Del- 
phian and the Philokosmian Literary Societies, 
held on Oct. 20, 1922. 



PHILO 

The following program was rendered in Philo 
Hall on the evening of Sept. 29, 1922: 

Alexander Graham Bell Lester R. Williard 

Germany of Today Raymond Hutchinson 

Song Society 

Political Debate Society 

Reading Lester Leach 

The program was short but highly spirited. 
The members entered into such heated discus- 
sion in the political debate that Mr. Leach was 
unable to give his reading completely. 

Among the pleasures of the evening were the 
remarks of one of the graduate members of 
Philo, Mr. Russel O. Shadel. Philo is always 
delighted to hear from any of its old members. 

On the evening of Oct. 6, 1922, Philo did not 
render a literary program, due to the large num- 
ber of men absent at Penn State. 

On Oct. 13, 1922, an interesting talk on "Facts 
and Fallacies of Present-Day Psychic Phenom- 
ena" was given by Maryan P. Matuszak. An 
instrumental solo by Ray Troutman, one of the 
new members, was thoroughly enjoyed by the 
society. Messrs. Cooley and B. P. Smith dis- 
played their argumentative turn of mind in a 
Socratic debate, the subject of which was, "Re- 
solved, That the Match Factory will be of Social 
Benefit to the Students of L. V. C." The musical 
number of the program was a choice selection 
of songs by "The Old Reliable Quartette," com- 
posed of Fake, Hutch, Izzy, and Pete, led by 
Jerry. The final number of the program was 
the Question Box, conducted by the Editor. 

Since the 'beginning of the school term, Philo 
has "admitted several new men- to membership, 
and is looking- forward to the most successful 
year of literary society work of her history.

JOINT SESSION— DELPHIAN- 
PHILOKOSMIAN 
Oct. 20, 1922 
With the Delphian officers presiding, Philo 
Hall was the scene of a very interesting pro- 
gram and social hour Friday night, October the 
twentieth. The Hall was so crowded that chairs 
from other departments were brought in to ac- 
commodate the many guests. The first number 
was a reading by Helen Hostetter. She por- 
trayed Billy Baxter and his sister Jane to a 
T, and we surely appreciated Booth Tarkington's 
"Seventeen" more than ever before. The Con- 
servatory was we.«l represented by the charming 
Misses Baker and Zeigler, who delighted us with 
a real duet. 

They met in a hotel lobby, Stella Hughes, the 
dear old lady, slightly deaf, and Raymond Hutch- 
inson, the famous Count, affected with a mon- 
acle. Her ball of yarn, and his "gentleman's 
cane" — brought them to a closer friendship. We 
all were sorry when they left the lobby — still 
engaged in a battling argument concerning the 
usefulness of ear-trumpets and monacles. 

Robert Allen entertained us with a very inter- 
esting lecture on Joan of Arc. Mr. Smith oper- 
ated the apparatus, which brought before our 
eyes the story of the French heroine. The col- 
ored slides strengthened our love for the French 
maiden. 

A novel playette, penned by Lester Williard, 
was interesting as well as instructive. The theme 
"Don't marry again until you are sure your first 
husband is away with" was very cleverly carried 
into effect by Isabelle Smith, the unfortunate 
wife; Gladstone Cooley, the legal husband; El- 
wood Stabley, the "would-be" husband, and Les- 
ter Williard, the "dear old uncle" — who arranged 
.everything — and they all lived happily ever after. 

"Living Thoughts and Oracles" had heaps of 
news in store for us. Miss Seifried certainly can 
collect news — and make special features, the 
main attraction. 



CLIO-KALO JOINT SESSION 



Friday, Oct. 20, 1922, Clio and Kalo held a 
joint session. A very interesting program was 
rendered, which was intensely dramatic, convul- 
sive at times yet now and then a touch of 
pathos. 3 

The opening number of the program was a 
very classical rendition by the Georgia Tamale 
Orchestra, which indeed was paramount. "Surely 
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like 
one of these." 



The sketch, "Courtship Under Difficulties," by 
Miss Merchitis, Mr. Wenner and Mr. Burtner, 
surely neld the audience spell-bound, a condition 
from whicn tney did not lully recover. For the 
production of "The Bat," from the pen of Mr. 
Wenner, proved that the fame of these., talented 
young actresses and actors will continue long 
after they have ceased to be. 

The pianologue by Miss Fegan was very well 
rendered, and certainly had the desired effect 
upon tne audienc. 

Next Miss Weisman melts the hearts of the 
hearers by reading, "A Voice From a Far Coun- 
try." As the last words of "Home, weet Home," 
died away, tnere was a profound silence. 

Tho time was fleeting, each longed to linger 
where tlieir hearts had flown. The calling back 
of the departed spirits was left to the orcnestra, 
and tney did. 

Then what? Suppose we say, smiles, cream, 
and cake, with a literary good-night. 

PROFESSOR BEATTY'S LECTURE ON 
THE "PASSION PLAY" 



Though we had all heard very much about the 
Passion Play, and had formed various opinions 
of our own concerning it, very few of us had 
anything more than a very vague idea as to just 
what it was like, until Sunday evening, October 
the twenty-second, when Professor Beatty made 
it very clear to all of us. 

Professor Beatty, assisted by Doctor Blose, 
who had composed music as nearly as possible 
like that played at Oberammergau, gave an il- 
lustrated lecture on the play at the United 
Brethren Church. The whole Church Auditorium 
and Sunday School room were crowded, not only 
by people from Annville, but by many who had 
heard about it and came from other places. 

Professor Beatty started by creating the real 
Oberammergau atmosphere by showing pictures 
of the town, its situation, and the very quaint 
houses. He showed the homes and home-life of 
the men who played the important parts of 
Christus, John, Judas, and many others in the 
play. He then showed and described pictures 
of the stage, the choir, and many of the actual 
scenes of the play. He had very good portraits 
of the men who played the leading roles. 

After the lecture was over many people said 
that he had really succeeded in doing what he had 
said he hoped to do, in the beginning of his lec- 
ture. He, by reading, here and there, parts of 
the play, together with Doctor Blose's music, had 
given at least a little of the real Passion Play 
thrill to those of us who were not so fortunate 
as to view the complete play in its own setting. 



Y. W. C. A. 



The Y. W. C. A. programs of the last three 
Sunday afternoons have been given over to 
Eaglesmere reports. The delegates are so filled 
with the "Spirit of Eaglesmere" that it is easy 
for them to impart some of it to the girls who 
stayed at home. The girls are really interested 
in hearing about it, as can be seen by the large 
number who gathered in the parlor to hear the 
reports at one o'clock each Sunday. 

On October the eighth, two of the delegate 
reported. Miss Dora Billet gave a resume of 
life at Eaglesmere which made every girl wish 
that she, too, might have spent ten days living 
on the mountain tops with six hundred other col- 
lege girls. Miss Ruth Oyer then told of the work 
of the U. R., and gave the statistics of the con- 



ference. She also explained to the girls the 
use of the budget system for the coming year. . 

At the next meeting, held October the fifteenth, 
Miss Lucile Shenk told about the different lec- 
turers who spoke at the conference. She brought 
back many choice bits from Dr. Buck's talks 
vju "Christian Brotherhood". After Miss Shenk's 
report, each girl present told of the ' influence 
some book or character in a book had on her 
life. The one that seemed to have impressed 1 
many of the girls was the life of Miss Vera Blinn. ] 

At the last gathering, on October the twenty- i 
second, Miss Kathryn Balsbaugh read the find- ] 
ings of the President's Technical Council. She j 
also gave a program of the things done each ; 
day while at conference, beginning with morning 
worship and going down through Bible Classes, \ 
recreation periods and all the other pleasures < 
of the day to the evening vespers, followed by 
uuiegation meetings just before retiring. Miss 
Helen Hostetter then told about music at Eagles- 
mere, after which Miss Olfa Smith sang one of ] 
the Association hymns used at Eaglesmere. Af- 
ter a ^iano solo by Miss Ruth Rockefellow, the ] 
meeting was brought to a close by the singing ( 
of "Follow the Gleam," the conference hymn. 

The Y. W. C. A. is now canvassing for mem- { 
bers. Most of the dormitory students and some ( 
not in the dormitories have signified their will- 
ingness to join the association. Next Wednes- < 
day evening, November the first, all the new girls < 
will be formally recognized at a candle service ■ 
at which new and old girls are urged to be pres- 1 
ent. i 



EXTENSION SCHOOL J 



The Lebanon Valley College Extension School 1 
opened the work for the year 1922-1923 with I 
^uite a goodly number of students. Regardless I 1 
)f the fact that Lehigh University and the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania are working in this ter- I ( 
ritory, classes have been organized in Harrisburg 
and Lebanon to carry on the work. 

Three classes in Harrisburg — General Chem- ( 
istry and Organic Chemistry under the instruc- 
tion of Dr. Andrew Bender, and Pennsylvania 
and The Federal Union under Prof. H. H. Shenk, 
are forming the nucleus for the large extension 
school that we feel will be Lebanon Valley's due. a 

In Lebanon, five courses — Educational Psychol- j 
ogy, English Drama, English Literature, Public 
School Music, Pennsylvania and The Federal rj 
Union — are being offered under the leadership c 
of Dr. Hoke, Prof. Beatty, Dr. Blose and Prof. t 
Shenk respectively. The classes are large, and Q 
bid fair to be but a beginning for the greater Q 
things in this phase of work that we know are 
in store for L. V. C. v

TUG-O-WAR 



One, two, three swings, and the rope landed A 

on the other side of the Quittie. Sophs to the A 

west side and Freshmen to the east side to line 1 
up for the time-old battle — the tug-o-war. 

The annual pull took place Monday afternoon, ^ 

October 9, at the usual place, that is, the widest, *j 
deepest, coolest spot in the Quittie. The first 

tug was valiantly done. For the first few tense £ 
minutes both sides strained every muscle in thefr 

effort to win, then, amid the deafening shouts of q 

the Freshman supporters, the Sophs slid silently 3 

into the water. The opponents changed sides— |y 
and luck, for this time the lusty yell of triumph 1 ^ 

came from the throats of the Sophomores. The j> 



last effort was made on land, with both teams 
at their best. Xhe pull was tierce, hard and 
long, but finally the Freshmen gave way and tne 
victorious Sophs gatnered up their well-earned 
rope and snake-danced back to town. 

STUDENTS' RECITAL 



THE PARTY GIVEN BY THE JUNIORS 
TO THE FRESHMEN 



The first students' recital of Engle Conserva- 
tory was held Tuesday evening, October 17. The 
program was opened by June Gingrich, who, 
while one of the youngest students, greatly 
pleased her audience witn her number. The pro- 
gram was well-balanced, with piano, organ, and 
.vocal selections, and wnile the first one of tne 
year, it showed careful preparation and indica- 
tions of the high grade of work which may be 
expected in future recitals.

THE SOPHOMORE PARTY 



On October 16th, no one could have found, 
anywhere, a nappier crowd than the Sophomores. 
If you but recall the significance of the date, you 
will soon discover the cause of our happiness. 
That day added another item to the list of our 
class victories. An important item it was, too, 
the triumph of the Sophomores in the 1922 Tug- 
o-War. No wonder we just had to .give vent to 
our feelings in a wild snake dance through the 
town. No wonder we made the old gym ring 
with sounds of merriment that night. Did you 
hear about the party? 

^Jacob and Ruth," always seeking each other, 
"Going to Jerusalem," with one or another. 
A contest resulting in poets new, 
And side-bursting calls of "Cock-a-doodle-doo" — 
These were the games we played. 

Sandwiches made of ham and cheese, 
And little cakes of the kind to please, 
A lemonade that was good and sweet, 
And ice cream truly hard to beat, 
These were the eats we had. 

Chaps that weren't slow to join in our mirth, 
Seniors, as guests, the best on earth, 
Music and laughter and fun galore, 
Would anyone wish for one thing more 
Than just to be always a Sophomore? 



The Freshmen did not win the tug-o-war this 
year, but their fellows put up a mighty good 
fight. Evidently, the Juniors thought so, for 
after valiant pleading for their cause, they ob- 
tained permission to give the Freshmen a party 
on that memorable evening, Monday, Oct. 16. 
So, instead of bemoaning their defeat in their 
rooms, the Freshies all turned out to have a 
good time, and we fear there was little studying 
done that night. 

The party was held in Philo Hall, and imme- 
diately upon their arrival, the Juniors endeav- 
ored to make the Freshies feel at home. Games 
were played, which included "Going to Jerusa- 
lem," "Wink" and charades given by groups sep- 
arated according to the months in which their 
birthdays came. The charades represented the 
months of the year, or happenings characteristic 
to them, and were very clever. After that, re- 
freshments were served and a social time was 
enjoyed by everyone. The Freshies left, feeling 
that there is some consolation, even in defeat, 
with such staunch friends as the Juniors to back 
them up. After all, they put up a splendid fight 
and are going to win the tug next year or know 
the reason why. 



L. V.-C. RES., 40— LEBANON ARMORY, 



The Lebanon Valley College Reserve team 
scored its second win in two weeks on the home 
field by taking Lebanon Armory Co. D football 
team under for a score of 40-0 in a somewhat 
loosely played game. The Reserves had numer- 
ous end runs, and Lebanon team had a hard 
time keeping in front of Capt. Reigle and his 
wrecking crew. Reigle featured in the game with 
a seventy yard run for a touchdown, in the 
second period. The Lebanon team could seldom 
stop him before he had gained considerable dis- 
tance, and twice he advanced the ball to the five 
yard line and Bowman and Fay took it over. 
Yeagley was the big scorer, tallying two touch- 
downs. Nitrauer also crossed the line and added 
six counters to the score. Capt. Reigle kicked 
four of his six tries for goals from touchdowns. 
Kellar was the only Lebanon man who showed 
any form. He made several ten yard gains.

L. V. C. RES., 27— SUNBURY H. S., 



Captain Reigle piloted his Reserve team to a 
27-0 victory over the strong Sunbury High School 
team on the Annville gridiron, Saturday, Oct. 
14th. This was the first home game of the Re- 
serves this season. Captain Reigle featured 
throughout the game with flashy line plunges 
and end runs, wnile his forward passes worked 
effectively. Gates and Yeagley played very good 
football and each contributed six points to the 
tally. Snavely, the husky left end of the team, 
also crossed tne goal line. Reigle contributed 
nine points to the score by scoring a touchdown 
and three goals from touchdowns. 

During the first quarter, Sunbury received the 
kick-off and marched up the field on five first 
downs until they reached the five yard line. Here 
they fumbled the ball, and it was Lebanon Val- 
ley's bail. Reigle punted forty yards, and Fox 
of Sunbury fumbled the ball and Hutchinson re- 
covered it for L. V. C. The period ended 0-0. 

The second quarter was the big period for 
Lebanon Valley, scoring 14 points. Bowman ad- 
vanced the ball 25 yards, but Fay was injured 
during the play, and Lebanon Valley called time. 
Fay was given medical attention and stayed in 
the game. Reigle did some good broken field 
running, and Gates took the ball over for the 
first touchdown. Reigle kicked the goal. A few 
minutes later Reigle broke away again with the 
ball, and this time he made a touchdown and 
kicked the goal. Cressinger fumbled on the kick- 
off, and Snavely recovered the ball for L. V. C. 
The Reserves then lost the ball to Sunbury, who 
were penalized five yards for being off-sides. 
They lost the ball on downs, and Lebanon Valley 
was then penalized for off-sides. Half ended 
14-0 favor Reserves. 

Lebanon Valley received the kick-off and on 
the first play were penalized for holding. They 
lost the ball to Sunbury on downs. Fox fumbled, 
and Ben Smith recovered. Yeagley crossed the 
line on the next play for the third touchdown. 
Reigle failed to kick the goal. Third period 
ended 20-0. 

In the fourth quarter, Sunbury received the 
kick-off and on the first play were penalized for 
off-sides. The fourth quarter was a little tight, 
but Snavely managed to slip through their line 
and scored the last touchdown. Reigle kicked 
the goal. Game ended 27-0, favor L. V. C. Res.

Outweighed by many pounds, Lebanon Valley 
made Georgetown's husky grid warriors travel 
fast and furious to come out on top, 19 to 6, in 
the struggle which took place on Saturday, Oc- 
tober 7, at Washington. 

Brilliant backfield work by "Henny" Homan 
and "Bill" Wueschinski brought our team a ; 
touchdown in the final period. 

A forward pass sent the ball over, after ouri 
speedy quarterback, "Henny," had ripped off a 
couple of runs, one for 35 yards, and had shot 
a forward pass to Wueschinski that netted 10. 

A second aerial fling by Homan to Wueschin- 
ski for 18 yards, achieved Lebanon Valley's 
points. 

Both teams played fast football all the way,, 
Georgetown, despite its superiority in weight, 
was unable to overcome the stubborn defense of 
our light team in the first period, the quarter 
ending with the ball 26 yards from Lebanon 
Valley's goal. Georgetown scored one touch- 
down in the second period, the other two coming 
in the third period. Tho we were defeated, we 
can feel proud of the score, for our light team 
was up against a big proposition.

L. V. C. SWAMPS ST. JOE— 46-0 



Our varsity won its first home game of the 
season by walking away with St. Joseph's Col- 
lege of Philadelphia. The boys from the city 
were completely outclassed throughout the game, 
while our boys did not need to over-exert them- 
selves to run up a big score. Hennie Homan ran 
through their lines for two touchdowns, as did 
Wueschinski and Boehm; Dick Smith tallied one

STAR COURSE 



An unusual Star Course with entertainers sent 
out by the White Entertainment Bureau of Bos- 
ton will afford an unusual treat to Lebanon Val- 
ley College, Annville, and environs. The first 
number will be presented in November, when the 
Plymouth Male Quartette will feature. The 
quartette is composed of individuals who have 
developed talent and capacity to bring to their 
audiences productions of artistic, practical and 
sentimental value, and without doubt they will 
aid materially in making the Star Course pro- 
gram a success. 

In December, William Sterling Battis will come 
to Lebanon Valley College as a master in his 
knowledge of Dickens and the characters found 
in the latter's works. This part of the course is 
one which no true lover of Dickens and Litera- 
ture can afford to miss. The Dickensian of Lon- 
don is quoted as follows: "Mr. Battis is doing 
for Dickens in America what Bransby Williams 
has done for the novelist in England." 

From the Leland Powers School of Expression 
come the Parker Fenelly Duo, who will be the 
Star Course representatives for January. They 
are talented young people who will bring to 
Lebanon Valley just tne right sort of interesting 
entertainment by filling an important role on 
the Star Course program. Programs such as the 
one which they will give, consisting of Short 
Plays, Monologues, Pianologues and Musical 
Readings, will add just the right sort of zest at 
the busy examination time. 

Mary Potter and the Boston Symphonic Quin- 
tet will be the Star Course feature for February. 
As contralto soloist in the Temple Emmanuel, 
New York City, Miss Potter possesses a voice 
the potentialities of which may be measured by 
the greatness of a Matzenauer or a Schumann- 
Heink. Three of the members of the Quintet 
accompanying Miss Potter were formerly mem- 
bers of the world-famed Boston Symphony Or- 
chestra. There is no doubt as to the position 
of this group in the Musical Circles of America, 
and Lebanon Valley College is proud to feature 
them upon the program of the year. 

The lecturer of the course is to be none other 
than Hon. Frederick A. Wallis, formerly U. S. 
Commissioner of Immigration at Ellis Island, 
who will come to us in March. His great lec- 
ture, "Immigration and Americanization," will 
form a fitting climax to the unusual and splendid 
program which the committee has to present. 

Interest in the Star Course and its success is 
surging high, and it is not a difficult matter to 
sell tickets. The latter may be obtained from 
any member of the Student Committee, Messrs. 
Earle Fake, Raymond Hutchinson, Robert Allen, 
and Jerome Stambaugh, and Misses Lucile 
Shenk, Mae Reeves and Dora Billet, in the early 
part of November. 



THURSDAY MORNING CHAPEL 



LISZT'S PLAYING 



The Thursday morning chapel period devoted 
to student interests under the auspices of the 
Faculty Committee on Activities, has secured in- 
teresting lectures to intersperse the otherwise 
ordinary daily routine of classes. Miss Flor- 
ence Bamburger, of the Department of Educa- 
tion, Johns Hopkins University, addressed the 
student body on Thursday, October the 18th, on 
the subject of "Story Telling and Stories." Miss 
Eamburger gave tne students a vivid conception 
of tne value of this art and of its development 
and proper application. She was most interest- 
ing, and the chapel hour seemed all too short. 
We are looking forward to having Miss Bam- 
burger with us again. 

Dr. Robert Bagnell, of Grace Methodist 
Church, Harrisburg, will address the students on 
Thursday, November the second. L. V. C. is 
looking xorward with pleasure and interest to 
the coming of this eminent clergyman, who will 
bring with him a message that none can afford 
to miss. 



PROSPECTS FOR CLIO 



Last week Clio administered the second de- 
gree of initiation upon twenty-five new girls, in- 
cluding two Juniors, three Sophomore and twenty 
Freshmen. Their names follow: Dorcas Bortz, 
Margie Brown, Sue Snavely, Esther Shenk, Lot- 
tie Snavely, Anna Bomberger, Edna Peiffer, Per- 
melia Rose, Grace Bouder, Josephine Matolitis, 
Pauline Bouterse, Margaret Rhodes, Sara Leah 
Zeitlin, Pearl Morrow, Marian Corle, Madeline 
Reiter, Estella Grubb, Carmie Kauffman, Dor- 
othy Smith, Betty Leachy, Helen McGraw, Sara 
Wieder, Marguerite Brossman, Dorothy Mancha 
and Yvonne Green. 

A committee including Misses Mary Hiester, 
May Morrow, Dora Billet, Cynthia Drummond, 
Edna Baker and Ellen Kellar has been appointed 
to arrange for the fifty-second anniversary pro- 
gram which will be held on Friday evening, No- 
vember the twenty-fourth. The committee is 
working hard to arrange an entirely original, in- 
teresting and literary program, to which all ex- 
Clionians and friends of L. V. C. are invited. 



It has been customarv for Dr. and Mrs. G. D. 
Gossard to present awards of ten dollars in gold, 
yearly, to individuals in each class who attain the 
highest standards of scholarships. At the com- 
mencement exercises in June awards and honor- 
able mention were made to the following mem- 
bers of the four classes: Senior — 1st honor, 
Miriam Cassel; 2nd honor, Russel Bowman. 
Junior — 1st, Frances Durbin; 2nd, Lucile Shenk. 
Sophomore — 1st, Mary Yinger; 2nd, Donald 
Fields. Freshmen — 1st, Stella Hughes; 2nd, 
Marion Hess. The making of awards is raising 
the standard of scholarship very materially at 
L. V. C, and those individuals who have attained 
unusual standing scholastically are deserving of 
merit. 



Sara Greiner, in Oratory— "Oh Admeteian 
Domes — " 

Prof. Beatty — "Please don't look at me when 
you say that, Miss Greiner." 



Prof. Hoke in Philosophy 14 seems to think 
that the savages were lucky because they did 
not need to deal with heavy weights* 



'Tis said Tartini held a captive soul 
Imprisoned in his magic violin; 
A maiden's, who for thwarted love had died. 
And when his wizard bow awoke the strings 
Her soul awoke from dreamy sleep within, 
And sadly moaned and cried. 

But when Liszt played, with touch of living firt 
And set a-tremble all the throbbing air, 
And thrilled the heart with rapture nigh despaii 
You knew no strings of steel could answer soj 
His instrument was strung with strands, you'c 
swear, 

Of sirens' golden hair. 

Yet not alone of sweetness fraught with pail 
His music told; but thunder roll and crash, 
And rush of torrent rain and lightning flash, 
And forest's trembling at the cyclone's roar; 
And frenzied waves that on a rock-girt shore 
Forever vainly dash. 

Of dew-drenched dawns and pearl gray velvet eves, 
And softest lisps of young summer leaves; 
And sigh of human heart that longs or grieves, 
Or loves and hopes, or questions, or believes, 
Of all of life that's true or that deceives, 
Or that the brain conceives. 

Thus Liszt, in multi-colored tones, did place 
Before us human life and Nature's face, 
In changeful mood or frowns or smiling grace; 
As somber pines against the blue of space 
Their shifting patterns, like to wind-blown lace 
May sometimes briefly trace. 

A complex universe for ears that see, 
Afloat upon a flood of harmony, 
The past, the present, and what is to be, 
In clear but dark and transcient tracery, 
The lines that sketch our Human Tragedy 
On far depths of Eternity.

Word Mongers'W 
Chattering Barbers" 

"Word mongers" and "chattering barbers," Gilbert called 
those of his predecessors who asserted that a wound made 
by a magnetized needle was painless, that a magnet will 
attract silver, that the diamond will draw iron, that the 
magnet thirsts and dies in the absence of iron, that a magnet, 
pulverized and taken with sweetened water, wilj cure./ 
.headaches and prevent fat. 

Before Gilbert died in 1603, he had done much to explain 
.inagnetism and electricity through experiment. Ht. found 
that by hammering iron held in a magnetic meridian it can 
be magnetized. He discovered that the compass needle is 
.controlled by the earth's magnetism and that one magnet 
can remagnetize another that has lost its power. He noted 
the common electrical attraction of rubbed bodies, among 
( them diamonds, as well as glass, crystals, and stones^and 
$ras the first to study electricity as a distinct force 

"*T t in books, but in things themselves, look for knowl- 
edge," he shouted. This man helped to revolutionize methods 
of thinking — helped to make electricity what it has become. 
His fellow men were little concerned with him and his experi- 
ments. "Will Queen Elizabeth marry— and whom?" they 
were asking. 

, Elizabeth's flirtations mean little t<5 us. Gilbert's method 
'means much. It is the method that has made modern 
electricity what it has become, the method whieh enabled 
the Research Laboratories of the Genera] Eicctrfe* Com. 
pany to discover new dcctiical principies'now applied in 
transmitting power for hundreds of miles, in lighting homes 
electrically, in aiding physicians with the X-rays ; in freeing 
civilization from drudgery.

How am I going to spend my Thanksgiving 
vacation? This is perhaps the question that is 
prevalent in most of your minds. Of course you 
want to have a good time, and it is well that 
you should; but, what, of course, are you going 
to pursue to attain this end? 

First, there is a nice, long talk with ma and 
pa, telling them how good you have been and 
how hard you have studied; but naturally not 
the slightest reference to the bad things. Then 
the dinner, yes, and a sumptuous one; including 
all those good things that ma prepares, such as 
turkey, duck, country ham, ah, I need say no 
more, you too well know. Dad will give you a 
good sized check? Sure, just like him though. 
Isn't it strange how parents think they have the 
best boy or girl in the world ? Say, pals, it makes 
one feel a little cheap sometimes, doesn't it But 
I suppose best so. The evenings all reserved for 
the regular girl or fellow — that's understood. 
Then you call it quits and return to school. But 
have you gotten the most possible out of your 
vacation? 

Allow me to advise something else. If your 
home is in the country, all well and good. If in 
the city, it won't take so long to get into the 
country. Mother and dad would like a long hike, 
and so would you. Take a day off and enjoy 
some of the many good things that this old world 
of ours holds in store for us. They won't be 
hard to find, you can run across them most any- 
where. But somehow or somewhere find them. 

It may be on a hill-top so high that no shadow 
can rest upon it, and where the morning comes 
so early and the evenings tarry so late that the 
day has many more golden hours. Such works 
are like a much loved song, they are forever 
singing themselves deeper and deeper into the 



delighted soul. Do we not often say as did the 
Indian captive in prison and in chains? 

"Let me go to my home where the cataract plays, 
Where oft I have sorted in boyhood's bright 
days, 

Where the tall cedars are, and the wild flowers 
grow, 

To my home in the forest, white man, let me 
go." 

In the quiet of the country, close to nature, 
is where man thinks his greatest thoughts and 
plans his deeds. It is here that the real wonders 
are. What fields of vision lie open to you Sur- 
vey the mountains and valleys, peer down into 
the blue depths of the ocean; study the mineral, 
vegetable and animal kingdoms. Stop not there. 
Go up on the wings of the wind and inspect those 
floating castles of white clouds overhead, and 
the rainbow bridge. Up yet! let eye of the mind 
take in the sun, moon, and stars. Higher yet! 
until you catch a glimpse of the jasper wall and 
the gates of pearl. Look through these until your 
eye rests on the King Himself and through na- 
ture hear the voice of God. 



A politician was out visiting the farmers be- 
fore the last election, when he met a farmer who 
told him that there was no use in arguing for 
his cause. The politician asked for the reason, 
and the farmer said: "'Well, I am a Republican, 
my wife is a Democrat, the cow is Dry, the baby 
is Wet, and the dog is a Socialist who keeps 
growling all the time." 

The man who ate his dinner with the fork of 
a river is now attempting to spin a mountain top.

THE MIRROR 



We are tired of many things. 

We are tired of the two or three girls who 
persist in coming .to meals one and a nail seconds 
late and tnen having to hear ourselves in self- 
protection bellow "Gangway!" 

We are tired of having. to sit at the table until 
the kitchen sends up the grub. We have work 
to do, not time to ogle the girls. We are tired 
of it. 

We are tired of the nice things the girls have 
m Nortn Hall and in South Hail wnich we must 
either buy or do without. 

We are tired of the .milk-white water that 
comes from our hot-water faucets. We want 
water, not a suspension of limestone. 

We would like to see tne President of the 
College occupy a more comfortable chair. We 
are only human. 

We are tired of a hullabaloo raised about 
electric irons and extra lights in the Boys' Dorm. 

We are tired of not getting heat on cold days 
and of getting too much of it on warm days. 

We are tired of seeing one or two of the girls 
dress more expensively than the others. 

We are tired of being asked to come to chapel 
so'bften. 

We are tired, of having to take exams. 
We are tired of having, a speaker tell us that 
the Tarzan stories are for children in the fifth 
grade. 

We are tired of the .profs taking the roll in. 
chapel. 

We are tired of the smoke that 'fills the dining 
hall at meal-time. 

We are tired of pear sauce. 
We are tired of the two fellows who come to 
chapel every morning just after we are seated 
and who have no respect for our pet corns. 

We are tired of the roughnecks who won't 
march out of chapel with a girl. 

We are tired of hearing the Y. W. meetings an- 
nounced at every Sunday dinner. 

We are tired of the girls who do not say 
"Hello!" first. 

We are tired of the girls who' do not eat Chef's 
masterpiece, sauerkraut. 

We are tired of hearing others sirtg, "I love 
you." • 

We are tired of hearing, in chapel, "Judge not, 
that ye be ; not judged." 

We are tired of many things. 
Indeed, some of us were born tired, others 
acquired a tired feeling, and still others have had 
tiredness thrust upon them. 



THE Y. M. ROOM 



When the Y. M. asked for an enlargement of 
the Y.'M. room, because of crowded conditions, 
in the dormitory, it could hot be granted. So 
there was only one thing- to do. That was, do 
without. 

The girls' dormitories, North and South Halls, 
have parlors furnished with rugs and good fur- 
niture at the expense of the college. The parlors 
in North and Soutb Halls are not for the boys; 
they are for the girls. The girls need them and 
certainly we boys do not begrudge the. girls 
their good fortune. "But the need for a common 
home-like room in the Boys' Dorm is as great 
as in the two girls' dormitories. 



It was decided to make the best of the bar- 
gain and plans were made by Mr. Ralph Boyer, 
president of the College Y. M. C. A. witii tnis 
end in view. These plans were the renovatmj 
of the old bare room and its conversion into 
place that would satisfy the home-craving in all 
tne boys' hearts. 

.Recently the Men's Senate purchased and pre- 
sented to tne Y. M. C. A. a beautiful five-lignt 
mandelier. Two years ago tne boys by" common 
subscription purcnased a piano for the roor 
Lfc.sC year, by the same means, a victrola wai 
secured. The college has furnished tne roor 
This year two corner seats have been built i% 
the room. A library table" and cnairs and 
lounge have been sent for. The room is to be 
soon repainted, in two colors. A rug is bein^ 
secured by one of the boys. At present three 
newspapers are being received daily in tne Y. " 
room. It is planned to have some magazine 
subscribed for. 

These tnings are going to cost money. But we 
must have them. Each boy will have to suF 
scribe to the fund to put the thing througl 
Outside help will be extremely welcome. 



L. V. C. PROGRESS 



It is with pleasure and enthusiasm that 1 
note the steady advancement of ' bur instituti 
on the road of Prosperity to Success. Ten yea 
ago we had enrolled in the College departmeft 
including the academy, one hundred and twent; 
one students. Ndw, after the onslaught of t. 
war, and the ruthless dragging of stuaents fro 
schools and colleges of tne world, we have e 
rolled in our institution, in the college depar 
tnent, two hundred and seventy-two student! 
The academy is not in existence, and this nu 
ber of students is divided among the four ciasse 
The class of 1^23 is the last class to surf 
from the war period, since it was the first clas 
to enter college after the signing of the armi 
tice. Tne Junior class numbers twice as man; 
students as does the Senior class, while the S 
phomore and Freshman classes hold their o 
with eighty and eighty-six members respective! 
Since virtually all of the students who drop o 
of college do so between the Freshman and S 
phomore years, we can easily see to what 
extent our institution is growing with probab 
graduating classes numbering three and fou 
score young men and women. 

In the music department are enrolled nine 
students, a great increase over former year; 
May we say here that the music department 
to be commended in the splendid way in whicJ 
the spirit of co-operation and good work is trans 
forming the Conservatory into a veritable center 
for concentrated, inspiring and artistic life. 

And most important of all, we have not beei 
able to accept all of the applications for entrance 
to the College Department this year. We have 
a waiting list and we are in a position now to 
select the individuals whom we want to credit 
Lebanon Valley as their Alma Mater. Our stu 
dents are young people of the highest calibre as 
every visitor to L. V. C. will not fail to note 
We are progressing.

Literary 



BEHIND THE "L' 



As stated in the student's handbook, the col- 
lege awards a letter "L" to an atnlete who 
plays tne required amount of games on one of 
the three sport teams, footbaii, basketball and 
baseball. The football, basketball and baseball 
men are all wearing tne letters directly as you 
see them on tne campus and out in tne streets. 
Not only these players are wearing them, but 
we are all wearing these letters indirectly. 

As I see the great big wnite letter "L" in the 
blue field on the breast of the football and base- 
ball player, I often think that there must be a 
background which is worthy to be investigated 
and also there must be a history behind that 
letter which we all as newcomers ought to know. 
I am sure some of you are familiar with the 
history of this institution, but to those who do 
not know, please let me repeat it. 

According to the conference report of 1865, 
the East Pennsylvania Conference of the United 
Brethren Church took place at Lebanon that year. 
At this conference, the resolutions were passed 
deciding the question of establishing a higher in- 
stitution of learning to be located witnin the 
bounds of East Pennsylvania. Now, why those 
people decided and resolved to establish a 
higher institution Because the growth of the 
United Brethren Churcn in Pennsylvania, Mary- 
land and in Virginia was so vigorous that it was 
the wishes of the Church to establish such a one. 
Thus the Lebanon Valley College was born with 
bright prospects. 

It was the purpose of the founders to give a 
young man and a woman a liberal culture, that 
he or she may be practical, self-reliant and 
learned citizen of the great nation. But above 
all, as stated in the "College History," the wishes 
of the founders were to give a Christian educa- 
tion and shape Christian character in every young 
man and woman. 

Having such a noble purpose and splendid 
record, we students who are representing the 
institution directly and indirectly, must be very 
careful in our daily conduct. Sometimes we for- 
get that we are carrying a heavy responsibility 
on our shoulders. At little misdeed means a bad 
reflection on the institution. 

Therefore I say that the letter "L" on the 
breast cf the atnlete is not an ornament, nor for 
looks, but it is a living representation of the 
college. For behind it lies the college, the stu- 
dent body, and the history of the institution. 
So let us show forth the real spirit of ft h" at 
home and abroad. Bring with us the spirit of 
the college wherever we go and whatever we do. 

HENRY ISHIMURA, '26. 



WHY HENNIE HOMAN IS A GOOD 
QUARTERBACK 

The most important quality of a good quarter- 
back is good generalship. That is, when calling 
signals, to call them in a shrill tone and dis- 
tinctly. This has a certain psychological effect 
uoon the players which makes them fight harder. 
It also produces more or less fear in the oppo- 
nents. It is generally noticed that a "skipper" 
who uses this form has better results than one 
who doesn't. Again, he must know just how to 
instill a fighting spirit in each one of his team. 
This is done in many ways. He may slap one 
fellow, kick another, plead with one and "bawl" 



some one else out, while praise will work better 
on some one else. As long as ne can keep them 
on edge he can depend upon them to do their 
utmost. For instance, Glenn Killinger, who if 
known as one of the best quarterbacks ever pro- 
duced at Penn State, was to the team on the 
gridiron what Huga Bezdeck was during practice. 
If a man made a wrong play and didn't do his 
full part in a single play, Glenn would give him a 
straight up and down lecture. As the old say- 
ing goes, "There are tricks in all trades." So 
there is in this position on a football team. One 
must be original and at the same time be shrewd, 
while the ability to keep cool is probably the most 
important of all. 

The next important quality is to be able to use 
your head as to what plays are to be run. In 
the Georgetown game this year a forward pass 
was made on our own thirty yard line. It was 
intercepted and the Georgetown player ran it for 
a touchdown. This was the wrong thing to 
have done. Either line-plunging or end-running 
should have been tried. If they would not work 
to an advantage, a kick should have been tried. 
Also, when the opposing team has one part of 
its line weaker than another, to run several plays 
through it and when they strengthen up at this 
place to make an unexpected end run or forward 
pass is plausible. Another trick, which is com- 
mon in the game, is to try line-bucking until 
the opponents secondary defense is drawn in to- 
wards the center of the line and then to open 
up a forward pass. This will work towards gain 
nine times out of every ten times it is tried. 

Third, but not least, is to be careful not to 
overwork any single player. If one side of the 
line seems to be. dragging, run plays through or 
around the other side of the line, run forward 
passes when the ends are rested and run line- 
bucks when they are tired. Probably the most 
important part in this department is to watch the 
backleld men. When any one of them in par- 
ticular seems fagged, let him interchange with 
another until he is rested up. One will find all 
these good qualities in our own little Hennie 
Homan, for the St. Joseph's players said that 
the University of Pennsylvania never had as good 
a quarterback as he. „„„„„

LIVING A HUNDRED LIVES IN ONE 



If you could change places with any person in 
the world, in whose shoes would you like to 
stand 9 You might think it would be fun to be 
the President of the United States, or a movie 
star, or an Arctic explorer. But when you stop 
to think it over, you realize that the President 
has a few more responsibilities than you would 
really care to shoulder; the movie star's work 
is very hard, and there is no telling what dread- 
ful thing might happen any time to an Arctic 
explorer. 

After all, you'd rather be yourself than any- 
bodv else in the world. The ideal arrangement 
would be to live the life of the other fellow for a 
few hours, and then right-about face and be your- 
self fifiTtiin 

Well, you can do it. In olden times, before 
machines were invented and before the coming 
of the income tax, fairies used to travel around 
the world offering favored mortals three wishes 
which would give them the opportunity to do or 



be anything in the world. It was kind enough of 
the fairies, but tneir method of personal investi- 
gation was so slow ana menicient tnat oniy a 
tew people had tneir wishes granted at a time. 
But witn tne invention of mouern macmnery tne 
fairies were enabled to increase tneir output, so 
tnat now, witn tne art of printing in its present 
stage of development, they give everybody an 
inaennite number of cnanees to cnoose another 
identity. Of course, the best feature of the fairy 
magic is not merely being a lark, but it is edu- 
cational, too. No one can find himself in some 
other fellow's shoes without learning sometning 
valuable. 

The man or woman, boy or girl, who reads, can 
slip into the minds of the most famous person- 
ages of the past or present, and know just how 
they have lived, what they did and thought. Un- 
less you have tried it, you have no idea what fun 
it is to be some one else for a few hours and 
then be vourself again.

SHALL THEY DECIDE OUR PROBLEMS? 



History is being written and has been written 
with blood — the blood spilt by a group who act 
as a barrier to any new thought. They are not 
organized as a political party; they have no 
nominee for leadership, but they go on down 
the road of self-interest as a united army with a 
united purpose, to check any new movement. At 
their hands pioneers have been left by the way- 
side as dead. Because of them ambitions have 
been unattained, and suffering unabated. 

Has it always been so ? Yes, every page of his- 
tory, both secular and religious, is red with the 
blood they have drawn. In Jesus' time, while 
His face was aglow after the performing of a 
miracle, "They reasoned among tnemselves" and 
mly a short time afterwards, after He had fin- 
ished His high priestly prayer, "They took coun- 
sel together, that they might kill Him." 

The Scribes and Pharisees of His day only 
change in name as time sweeps by. We pass to 
a courtroom scene. A man is on trial. What is 
the accusation? He has done some new thinking 
in -theology. It is Martin Luther. Because he 
dared to be original he must die, little suspecting 
that his name would become great in history. 

The church composes some of the members of 
this group to whom no one has cared to give a 
name, only to know them by They and quote them 
as. "They said — " Leaving the court where Luther 
was tried we go to the church to find our ex- 
ample. Galileo, while over him was standing the 
Pope and while They watched, was made to 
sign a paper declaring that the world does not 
move. Why? No one else believed it, so They 
searched the Scriptures and found a text which 
They thought proved their belief. He was com- 
pelled to do or die. He chose life, but he knew 
the world really did move. 

This is also true in the literary world. John 
Milton, because he didn't write like other men, 
sold his "Paradise Lost" for five pounds; and 
Walt Whitman's writings remained an unknown 
treasure until the dawn of the present century. 
Samuel Johnson, whose works are studied in the 
High Schools as classics, had to struggle to keep 
body and soul together. Bobbie Burns, whose 
"Auld Lang Syne" is known at nearly every 
hearthside, and whose "To a Mountain Daisy" 
lias made many a foot more cautious, struggled 
for a mere existence and at the early age of 
thirty-seven had to submit to the Conqueror 
Death. 

They have shown their power in the national 
and political affairs. Through the public press 



they tried to bring shame upon Lincoln and 
ttooseveit, tnose great servants of numanity. 

But Siiall this continue I is it quice right 
chat a few that never stop to tnink snail hmuer 
the progress of invention and genius ana pniian- 
tnropic minds V In Lebanon inuepenaent .Bor- 
ougn, a borough having a voting popuiacion of 
eignt hunaieu, only two hunuieu vote. Can we 
allow our democratic government to fail to a 
level wnere oniy one-tourtn of its people snail 
take upon tnemselves tneir rightful obligation? 
Snail our women fail to grasp tne opportunity 
because They have conceived tne idea tnat ihey 
don't want to vote. Can we atford to let them 
pnatch away the very thing on wnich our nation 
\i built? 

Because They are indifferent, can we afford to 
increase our percentage of illiteracy? Until very 
recently little was done individually to lower our 
percentage. The government did its share, but 
men everywhere were evading its requirements. 
Tne war repealed to us tnat our percentage of 
illiteracy was twelve per cent. How can We 
idly "doze" swung in the cradle that They rock? 

Shall our factory girls sell life and virtue be- 
cause They have voted it to be so ? Our present 
fall in the womanhood of America is shifted to 
our factory girls. But statistics would also have 
us note that underpay, lack of interest and friend- 
ship, unattained hopes, which tend to bring all 
kinds of discouragement, are the main causes 
for the decline. While some are privileged not 
to be factory girls, those girls who may have 
been pressed and fallen, can individuals accept 
the decision that They give and act as though 
their hands were tied? 

We must flee from their ideas regarding the 
alien. They have said, "Let him take care of 
himself." But is it fair? Can we not treat our 
new citizens as natives of our land, with a com- 
mon flag and interest? How dare we longer 
delay? We must stand by those who claim 
that Americanization is our problem as well as 
that of the foreigner, and put our shoulders to 
the wheel. 

We must not let our decline become graver be- 
;ause They will not encourage. When men every- 
where, in mill, office, college and farm, forget and 
drift on in sin, there is a challenge. Shall we 
'ail that They suspect we've joined church and 
iave become hypocrites? How dare we fail? 

The only way we can keep them from solving 
our problems is by solving them ourselves. Not 
n the mass, but as individuals. Strong men and 
vomen are needed who will not care what They 
say. It must be a brave army, for the obstacles 
are many. Only by enduring their persecution 
ihall we succeed, but yet we may know: 

"What matter though I stand alone? 

I wait with joy the coming years; 
My heart shall reap where it has sown, 
And garner up its fruit of tears."

Activities 



DELPHIAN 



The Delphians devoted almost their entire pro- 
gram of November tenth to tne study of Words- 
worth and his poetry. Short talks on the life 
gnd nature of this noted poet, and the reading 
of several of his poems made society session very 
enjoyable, Tne best part of tne program, How- 
ever, was given by Professor Beatty in his lec- 
ture on ''Wordsworth and tne Commonplace." 
Mr. Beatty was nimseif so interested in his sub- 
ject tnat ne could not fail to make his hearers be- 
come interested also. Because of his delightful 
talk, every Delphian has acquired a greater 
knowledge of Wordsworth and a better apprecia- 
tion of his poetry. 

Tne Delpnian Society is very proud of its new 
members this year, for they are all very talented 
and will surely co-operate with the old mem- 
bers in making this a most successful year. 
Below are the names of the new Delphians.

CLIO 



On November the third Clio held a most inter- 
esting program. Newly accepted members of tne 
society weie included on trie program and it was 
pieasmg as well as satisfying to note the splendid 
t,aient of tne £ resnman Uiass. Miss Dorcas Bortz 
artistically rendered a piano solo and Miss Sara 
Lean Zeitnn read an impressive parody on Mark 
Antnony s oration. In tne absence of the editor, 
Miss Dora Bnlet read tne Ulive Branch, which 
added the usual spice to the program. Tne fea- 
ture of the evening, however, was the debate on 
the "Near East Question," "Kesolved, tnat the 
United States snould interfere in the Near East 
Problem. ' Misses Estuer Brunner and Mabel 
Silver ably defended tne cause, wnile Miss Kosa 
Zeigler and Madie Shoop took the negative side 
of tne question and won the debate. 

The ''All Freshman" program was rendered on 
November the tenth, when tne verdant classmen 
answered to the roll call with individual stunts. 

Misses Betty Leacny, Yvonne Green and Sara 
Leah Zeitlm pleased the Ciionians with a vocal 
solo and pantomime while Miss Pearl Morrow 
read an interesting story. Miss Esther Shenk 
read effectively "Our Sofa," from Dr. N. C. 
Schlichter's collection of poems, and Miss Helen 
M'Graw, our talented pianist, delighted us with 
several selections. Misses Sara Wilder and Mar- 
guerite Brossman worked out some clever cha- 
rades and dialogues while Miss Marian Coyle 
displayed her talent as -a musician. Miss Anna 
Bomberger gave a short and snappy address and 
Miss Dorothy Smith is to be commended in the 
admirable way in which she can present humor- 
our happenings extemporaneously. Miss Lottie 
Snavely recited an interesting and inspiring poem 
which no Clionian will ever forget. Misses Mato- 
litis and Kauffman represented our songsters. 
We are sure that with the talent displayed in this 



Freshman program Clio can be very proud of 
her new original and clever uaugnters. 

On Friday evening, Nov. lita, a Clio alumni 
program oi an unusual type wnl De presented 
ivloie wai oe spoKdi ot concerning tms program 
in a latre issue, in connection with tne anniver- 
sary program of November 24th. 



PHILO 



On November 3, 1922, a special Athletic Pro- 
gram was rendered by f nilo. inland Kenn and 
rucnard Smith gave interesting taiits on rootball 
ind on Basketball, respectively. The debate was 
on the subject: "liesoived, that L. V. C. snail com- 
pete witn scnools m her class, in major sports." 
Messrs. Kaymond Hutchinson and Benton P. 
Smith upheld the affirmative, while Messrs. 
Claude Kupp and Guy Faust supported the nega- 
tive. Elwood Stabley reviewed the history of 
tennis at Lebanon Valley College and indicated 
the future of this sport here in his talk on 
"Tennis Tossibilities at L. V. C." 'lne feature 
number on tne program was Prof. Paul S. Wag- 
ner s talk on ".athletics at L. V. C." Trof. Wag- 
ner is an old Philo and his presence in Tmlo Hall 
is always welcome. 

On the program for Nov. 10, 1922, were sev- 
eral men who have only recently become mem- 
bers of Philo. Elmer Eshelman recounted in 
brief tne cnief happenings in tne worid thro tig n 
current events. The debate was on tne subject, 
Resolved, tnat the Movies as Tney now Exist are 
Beneficial to tne Worid at Large. On the affirma- 
tive side were Messrs. T\,arl *ake and M. Weity; 
on tne negative, Messrs. Calvin Pencil and Wil- 
liam Quaide. Messrs. Weity and Quaide, both 
comparatively new members, snowed remarkable 
public-speaking ability, raul Gruver, another 
new man, painted magnificent word-pictures of 
tne scenery of North America, in his review of 
Viscount Hryce's last article. Lester Leacn once 
more delighted his brother Philos with some bal- 
lads and quaint southern songs sung to the ac- 
companiment of his autoharp. Carl Bacnman, 
.n his first public appearance in Philo Hail, gave 
a very instructive discourse on the manufacture 
of snoes. Tne final number on tne program was 
the reading of "Living Thoughts," the society 
paper, by Jerome Stambach, tne editor. 

In the business session that followed the liter- 
ary session on Nov. 10th, an election of officers 
was held. Tne new president is Lester Williard. 
The new corresponding secretary is William 
Beatty. 

KALO 



On Friday evening, November 10th, the snap> 
piest program of the year was rendered before 
an enthusiastic audience. The interest and en 
thusiasm displayed Friday night is an assuring 
sign of the return of our old time pep and 
former literary superiority, but now to the nth 
degree. 

The opening number of the program was a 
piano solo by our own incomparable Mr. Ruth. 
The keen attention paid to both his solo and 
encore was indicative of the Society's enjoyment 
and appreciation of them. The good work was 
continued by the next number — a debate which 
was a thriller in two senses; first, the subject 
itself was of such vital importance to student 



life that not one member of the society was 
caugnt napping during tne debace, and second, 
by means oi it, the uebators — never recognized 
as sucn on tne campus — were displayed in a 
new ngut. Tne tension was relieved by the final 
number — "A Sermon'' — by Mr. Jonn Rnoades, 
wnose impersonation of a colored evangelist was 
ultra realistic. 

Kaio programs are always eye-openers. Ou 
next program will ieature our Frosh. It will 
be tnen tnat we can obtain an idea as to their 
particular abilities. 

Tne door of Kalo is always open to friends. 



THE HALLOWE'EN PARTY 

The annual Halloween Party, given by the 
Philokosmian Literary Society, was held Satur- 
day evening, November the fourth. The students 
had been previously informed tnat it was to be 
a farmers party, and every person was to be 
appropriately dressed for tne occasion. Farmers 
came from tar and near with tneir families. 

Tne gymnasium was artistically decorated with 
autumn leaves, corn shocks, and pumpkins. An 
orcnestra, composed of some of tne farmers, 
furnished the music. Several old dances, such as 
The Dance of the Seven Jumps and Captain 
Jinks of the Horse Marines, were presented. 
Vhese furnsined a great deal of amusement, but 
tne feature of the evening was a series of mov- 
ing pictures, 'the subject matter of the movies 
varied considerably, consisting of anything from 
'bwora Swallowing " to "Going Girling at L. V." 
however, they all proved very interesting, and 
;eemed to be enjoyed by every one. 

Last but not least were the refreshments, 
irhleh were as pleasing as tne events of the ear- 
ier part of the. evening. After saying farewell, 
he farmers departed for their homes. 

The party was declared a complete success, 
and Phiio deserves to be commended for their 
very original way of entertaining. 



Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITIES 

The annual recognition service for new mem- 
bers of tne Y. W. C. A. was held Wednesday 
evening* November the first, in [North Hail 
parlor. The regular candle light service was 
used. The meeting was opened by singing a. 
hymn after wnicn tne old members repeated the 
purpose of the Association. Then, while the 
"Hymn of the Lignts" was sung, each new girl 
'.ignted a small candle at tne Association candie, 
held by tne president. Tnen they moved around 
ind completed tne circle made by tne old girls, 
kfter the singing of the Eaglesmere Conference 
Hymn, "roiiow tne Gleam," the meeting was 
turned over to a business session to show the 
new girls how the business meetings are con- 
iucted. , 

Reports telling of the work carried on by 
each committee were given by the chairladies. 
All unfinished and new business was attended to, 
after which the meeting was adjourned to a social 
time. 

The program - at this time was in charge of 
Miss Dora Billet, chairlady of the social com- 
mittee, who had planned it so that the new girls 
should take part. The program was as follows: 
a piano solo by Miss Ruth xockfellow; a vocal 
solo. "Where Apples Grew on the Lilac Tree," 
by Miss Betty Leachey; a reading, "Grandpa's 
Version of Slang," by Miss Sarah Leah Zeitlin; 
and several Scotch airs sung by Miss Mary 
MacDougal. The last number was a trio by 
Miss Gladys Bossert ; Miss Madge Clemm and Miss 
Harvine Levan, who sang several popular songs 



accompanied by the ukulele. After refreshments 
were served the party came to an end, after 
the first Y. W. social gathering of the year. 

Even though there have been many good times, 
the Sunday afternoon programs have not been 
neglected. The one of November the twelfth 
was especially interesting in tnat it celebrated 
the fiftieth anniversary of tne organizing of the 
Young Women's Christian Association. A pro- 
gram received from the National Board was car- 
ried out. The first number was the singing of 
'Follow the Gleam," after which Miss Delia Herr, 
president of the Association, read about the or- 
ganization of the first meeting. She read how 
there were only six women present at the first 
gathering and how they drew up a constitution 
based on that of the Young Men's Christian As- 
sociation. She read how the Association became 
first a school gathering, then a state, then a na- 
tional and finally a world organization. After this 
;h'ere was a vocal solo, "My Task," by Miss Olga 
M. Smith, after which the "Hymn of the Lights" 
was sung. The orogram ended, after a piano solo- 
by Miss Dorothy Mancha, by the singing of the 
Lenediction hymn. 



MR. J. STITT WILSON 



On November 7th everyone went to chapel wit 
more enthusiasm than usual. Mr. J. Stitt Wil- 
son was scheduled to speak, and since he came 
to Lebanon Valley College with such splendid 
recommendations from other colleges, we were 
quite anxious to hear him. 

Mr. Wilson is traveling through the United 
States and Canada, lecturing to the various col- 
leges and universities. Due to the shortness of 
his time here, he could not give us the full series 
of his lectures; however, in his three tahis dur- 
ng the day, he succeeded in giving us plenty 
of material for thought. His purpose was to 
present world problems and to urge us, as col- 
lege students, to study these problems and to 
take part in them. 

His first lecture, which, for the most part, was 
introductory to the other two, served to con- 
vince us tnat the world today is passing through 
the most critical, most tragic hour in human 
history. The second lecture, everywhere con- 
sidered his best, developed the idea of "The 
Master Principle — As Revealed by Science." Inl 
his presentation of this subject, Mr. Wilsonl 
clearly proved how false is the belief expressed] 
in those few words of "the survival of the fit-j 
test." He taught, also, that there are two maihl 
aspects of life: The Struggle for Self, and the 
Struggle for Others, and that all forms of life 
which have developed most highly the latter 
quality are the fittest to survive. In his third 
lecture, he dealt with Christianity and Paganism, 
appealing that we accept the challenge of Con- 
structive Christian Democracy by taking an un- 
selfish part in the problems of the world. 

In all his lectures Mr. Wilson showed many 
of the qualities of a good public speaker. He 
was intensely in earnest, thoroughly acquainted 
with his subject, and anxious to make his hearers 
understand the principles which he himself up- 
leld. His sense of humor was keen enough to 
relieve, at psychological moments, the seriousness 
of his talk. His language was characterized 
by concreteness and vivid examples illustrating 
the truth of his statements. As for his ideas, 
those which he expressed, and those which he did 
not express, let it be sufficient to say that they 
made us think. And that, after all, was Mr. 
Wilson's main purpose. 



THE REPORTS OF THE Y. W. C. A- 
COMMITTEE 



"Assemble, ye members of the Y. W. C. A. 
and harken unto me. I, the Goddess of Suc- 
cess, have heard you calling for me. There- 
fore, out of the strange, mystic land where I 
dweil, am i come to give you audience. You 
have entreated me to grant you success in your 
work, lieiore 1 give my promise, it is necessary 
that you make t nown unto me your plans tor 
the year. Will you, Miss Herr, as president of 
the Y. W. C. A. of Lebanon Valley College, te i 
me what your association has done and what it 
purposes to do in tne near future?" 

"Most beautiful and esteemed goddess, we are 
irery happy girls today because you have hon- 
ored us with your presence. I will gladly tell 
you o four plans, and I hope to do so in such a 
way tnat you may know how much we hope to 
have you remain with us. 

"Almost all of the responsibility of our asso- 
ciation has been placed in the hands of various 
committees. The membership committee, under 
the leadership of Miss Esther Brunner, has done 
most of the work so far. It had charge of the 
'Big Sister Movement' and, during the first few 
days of this school year, was quite busy wel- 
coming the new girls, placing flowers and mot- 
toes in tneir rooms, and also supplying the old 
girls with cards entitled 'The Good Samaritan 
in College.' As a result of the efforts of this com- 
mittee, we were able to add twenty-eight mem- 
bers to cur list of members. 

"All our meetings, except those pertaining to 
missionary work, have been under the direction 
of Miss Edna Baker and her committee, who 
have supplied us with several interesting and 
helpful programs. They are determined to make 
still better the meetings which shall follow. 

"Working with the Meetings Committee is the 
Music Committee, with Miss Helen Hostetter at 
its head. Someone has said that there are four 
essential needs in human life: Food, clothing, 
shelter and music. The purpose of the Music 
Mommittee is to secure for the girls of the Y. 
W. C. A. this fourth need, or music. 

"Miss Lucille Shenk, as chairman of the Bible 
Study Committee, reports that the clasls in 
Freshman Bible tudy has had a promising be- 
ginning. This committee aims to give the Fresh- 
man girls a chance to become better acquainted 
with the teachings of the Bible and with the 
work of our association. 

"We have also joined in the 'World Fellow- 
ship Movement,' or in the effort to bring into 
closer relationship the students and people of 
all lands. For this purpose, we devote the first 
meeting of every month to the missionary cause. 
With Miss Brenneman in charge of these meet- 
ings, they cannot help but be worthwhile. 

"The Social Committee, whose chairman is Miss 
Dora Billet, is performing its work notably well. 
The members of this committee are making ar- 
rangements for four parties during the year, 
a house party for the cabinet in the spring, and 
other social events, the details of which they are 
not publishing. Besides all these things, in con- 
nection with the Y. M, C. A. they started our 
'Match Factory,' which has met with so much 
approval among the students. 

"The publicity part of our association is tnken 
care of by a committee with Miss Madie Shoop 
as chairman. She and her co-workers have been 
pleasing everyone with their clever, attractive, 
posters, advertising the meetings, and with the 
literature which they distribute from time to 
time to the girls. 



"Last, but by no means least, I would mention 
that we are trying not to be selfish in our mo- 
tives. To prove that we are thoughtful of those 
less fortunate than we, we have organized a So- 
cial Service Committee. Miss Mae Morrow, a? 
:hairman, is controlling the plan of obtaining 
lolls and toys, to be distributed to poor cnildren 
it Christmas time. • 

"Now, O Goddess, I have revealed to you the 
iccomplishments and plans of our association 
iVe can only hope that they have been worthy of 
i r appro, al. Anxiously, we await your de- 
jision." 

"Miss Herr, and all other members of this 
splendid band of Christian girls, you need have 
no fear that, after hearing such a report, I could 
Refuse to help you. You have certainly nlanne 1 
pour work in an admirable way. In the same 
way continue to work and plan, and I promise 
to be with you, in all of your undertakings, 
throughout the year." 



L. V. C. UPSETS WASHINGTON COLLEGE, 
32-0 



L. V. C. sprung the surprise of the season on 
Washington College at Chestertown, Md., when 
our boys ran all around them on the Harrisburg 
"Island Field" and ran up a neat little score of 
32-0. The Washington College boys came into 
camp, confident of swamping us with their 
strong combination of welf experienced football 
men. Our boys scored at will and seemed not 
to exert themselves at any time throughout the 
game. 

First Quarter 

Washington received Beck's kick-off and Bum- 
schatt fumbled on the thirty yard line, L. V. C. 
recovering and losing the ball on a fumble in the 
first play. The first quarter was a series of 
fumbles until the Wilder machine got working 
right. Dick Smith suddenly broke loose on an 
end run and scored the firstN touchdown. Bill 
Wueschinski failed to kick the goal. Washing- 
ton again received Beck's kick-off and advanced 
the ball forty yards. Here they fumbled on the 
first play and Wueschinski recovered the ball. 
Dick Smith carried the ball nine yards and Henny 
Homan made a first down on a line plunge. A 
pass from Smith to Clarkin registered 35 yards 
of territory for the blue and white. Joe Danker 
then took the ball over the line for a touch- 
down. Bill Wusechinski scored the extra point. 
Bumschatt again received Beck's kick-off and 
fumbled, L. V. regaining the ball. Henry Homan 
ran 40 yards through a broken field and it re- 
quired three men to bring him down. The two 
teams lined up again and the whistle blew for 
the quarter. 

Second Quarter 

During the second period, Washington showed 
some football stuff. They intercepted one of 
our forwards and advanced the ball considerable 
distance. They were forced to punt, however, 
and Wueschinski received and advanced the ball 
to the 20 yard line. A series of plays brought 
the ball to the one yard line, but here the 
Washington boys gummed things up and held 
like a stone wall, taking the ball on downs. L. V. 
received Darrington's punt and on the first play 
Henry Homan passed the ball to Wueschinski 
on the five yard line surrounded by three Wash- 
ington men and managed to slip across the line 
for a touchdown. Henny's kick for the extra 
point failed. Washington received Frock's kick- 
off and fumbled, Lauster recovering the ball on 
the forty yard line. Play had hardly begun 
when the half ended. 



Third Quarter 

Clarkin received Wasnmgton's kick-off. Homan 
scored a first down on ti*e lintiai piay. Wues- 
cnniSKi punted to Darrington alter tmee downs 
nad proved unsuccessful in gaining tiie required

henny ran 30 yarus througn a broken held for 
a touci.uown. Wuescninsivi scored the goal. 
Wasnington received v rock s kiCK-oif and had tne 
pleasure of seemg two of tneir forwards ground- 
ed, and lost the ball on downs. Smith then 
earned tne Dan for 4U yards, Homan for eignt, 
and JtJoenm for ten. Darrington tnen received 
Homan s orf-side kick and grounded several for- 
wards. \VueschmsKi received tne punt as the 
wuistle blew. 

Fourth Quarter 

Dick Smith- ran around end for ten yards, 
Homan went tnrougn tne line for eignt yards, 
L. V. was penalized 5 yards for off-sides. Wues- 
cninski tnen punted. Washington had two more 
grounded forwards, and Wuescninski intercepted 
tne tnird. Boehm advanced the ball ten yards, 
Homan twenty yards to tne five yard line and 
Boenm too* it over on a line plunge. Homan

L. V. C. SPILLS SUSQUEHANNA, 19-0 



Our boys got Susquehanna on the run on the 
Lebanon Gridiron and cleaned them up decisively 
with a 19-0 score. The Susquehanna boys were 
confident of winning and considered their season 
a success if they could manage to defeat us. We 
often wonder what they think now. Our boys 
simply outclassed them, but easy playing kept 
the score down to 19-0. 

First Quarter 
. Means kicked off and the ball rolled behind 
the goal posts and resulted in a safety. L. V. 
punted and Susquehanna received and lost the 
ball on downs. The ball exchanged hands several 
times within the first five minutes of play, finally 
coming into the possession of Susquehanna. The 
referee then penalized the visitors 10 yards for 



holding. On the next play they were thrown for 
i loss of 10 yards. They were forced to punt, 
ind Perry received. L. V. advanced the ball up 
;he field and Dick Smith went around end and 
down the field for a touchdown. Perry failed to 
tally the seventh point. Sweeney received 
Beck's kick-off and advanced thirty yards. Sus- 
quehanna had the misfortune of grounding sev- 
eral forwards, and again were forced to kick. 
Perry received on the 15 yard line and advanced 
20 yards. Wueschinski went through the line 
for 10 yards, and Dick Smith duplicated the 
stunt on the next play. L. V. was penalized for 
off-sides and Perry punted to Sweeney, who cov- 
ered considerable acreage before he was gath- 
ered in by Lauster's husky arms. Birdie Renn 
was injured on the next play, but refused to 
leave tne game. Play was scarcely resumed 
wnen the period ended. Score, 6-0. 

Second Quarter 

Sweeney came into the limelight by a broken 
field run which netted him 30 yards. However, 
his team-mates did not seem to equal his stellar 
playing, and lost the ball on downs on the 25 
yard line. Sweeney then dropped into oblivion 
by fumbling Ferry's punt, which Birdie Renn 
collected and delivered to Frock. Smith then 
ran 30 yards, but L. V. was penalized 10 yards 
for holding. Perry punted out of bounds on the 
30 yard line. He then received Susquehanna's 
punt and advanced 20 yards. Dan^ er then gained 
25 yards on a forward. Sweeney again came in- 
to prominence by intercepting a pass and gain- 
ing 20 yards. Wueschinski, however, intercepted 
the next pass and regained the lost 20 yards. 
Our next forward pass was grounded as the 
whistle blew and the half ended 6-0. 

Third Quarter 

The third quarter was listlessly played by 
both teams. However, our boys checked every 
sign of activity on the part of Susquenanna. 
bweeney received the luck-olf and advanced his 
usual 20 yards. Danker was nurt on tne next 
play, but ne also refused to leave t~e game. Sus- 
quenanna was forced to punt, r-erry received 
and advanced 15 yards. He tnen punted to Sus- 
quenanna and Sweeney received on tne 35 yard 
line. Susquehanna was tnrown for a loss of 8 
yards on tne next play. They tnen punted to 
Perry, who received on the 10 yard line. L. V. 
was penalized five yards for off-sides, and Perry 
again punted. Henry Homan entered the game 
and relieved Perry. Susquenanna lost the boll 
on downs, and the quarter ended, 6-0. 

Fourth Quarter 

The fourth quarter was the big quarter for 
the blue and white. With Henny guiding the 
team, they traveled like magic. Henny made 
two spectacular 30-yard runs in success.on. The 
ball was advanced to the ten yard line, and 
Wueschinski took it over. Henny kicked the 
*oal from touchdown. Score stood 13-0. Thomas 
received Beck's ki'ckoff and advanced 30 yards. 
Susquehanna was penalized for holding. Sweeney 
•vent around end for 15 yards, and a pass was 
grounded on the next play. They were forced 
;o kick and Wueschinski received and ran 25 
jrards. Homan carried the ball 10 yards on the 
»ext play. Wueschinski added 15 more yards, 
md Henny's 12 yards came in handy in advanc- 
ing the ball to the five yard line. Wueschinski 
fhen took the ball over. Henny failed to kick 
;he goal. Susquehanna received the kick-off and 
;he whistle blew before the ball went into play 
igain. Game ended 19-0. Summary:

LA PHILOSOPHIE 
Science 

Ignorance, poverty, and vice must stop popu- 
lating the world. To accomplish this, there is 
aut one way. Science must make woman the 
owner of heiself. Science, the only savior of 
mankind, must put it in the power of woman 
to decide for heiself whether she will, or will 
not, become a mother. — Robert G. Ingersoll. 

If you want a ground of brotherhood with man, 
not merely in these islands, but in America, on 
the Continent — in a word, all over the world — 
such as rank, wealth, fashion, or other artificial 
arrangement of the world can not give and can- 
not take away; if you want to feel yourself as 
good as any man in theory, because you are as 
good as any man in practice, except those who 
are better than you in the same line, which is 
open to any and every man; if you wish to have 
the inspiring and ennobling feeling of being a 
brother in a great freemasonry, the only Inter- 
national League which is likely to make mankind 
(as we all hope they will be some day) one — 
then become men of science. Join the free- 
masonry in which Hugh Miller, the poor Cro- 
marty stonemason, in which Michael Faraday, 
the poor bookbinder's boy, became the compan- 
ions and friends of the noblest and most learned 
on earth, looked up to by them not as equals 
merely but as teachers and guides, because phil- 
osophers and discoverers. — Kingsley. 

The world, a world of prose, 
Full-crammed with facts, in science swathed and 
sheeted 

Nods in stentorious after-dinner doze! 
Plangent and sad in every wind that blows 
Who will may hear the sorry words repeated: — 
"The gods are dead." — W. E. Henley. 

Like the gifts of God, those of science can be 
made either a blessing or a curse, to glorify the 
human race or to destroy it; and upon civilized 
nan himself rests the decision as to the course 
•o follow. — Sir Richard -Gregory. 



Every science has been an outcast. All the 
dtars and all the thrones united to arrest the 
forward march of the human race. The kings 
said that mankind must not work for themselves. 
The priests said that mankind must not think for 
themselves. One forged chains for the hands, 
the other for the soul.— Robert G. Ingersoll. 



As a people we have paid little attention and 
given littie encouragement to scientihc research. 
It is the man working in tne cnemical laboratory 
who is to blaze tne way for human progress. — 
Senator Wausworth. 



In our century, science is the soul of t.:e pros- 
perity of nations and the living source of all 
progress. — Pasteur. 



A DESERT IN MARCH 



Ti.ere are people whose idea of a desert is a 
boundless stretch of bare sand and s-iifcing 
dunes, shimmering in t.ie scorching heat of the 
sun. But the desert I want you to see, is a 
rolling country, bounded by majestic mountains 
on the north and west, and splurged with brush, 
varying in height from six inches to three feet, 
with sand-scarred, gnarled, deformed branches 
and small new shoots which pushed their way 
through the dead looking bark in order to dis- 
play the whitish green leaves highly scented with 
the odor peculiar to sage. Here and there a yuc- 
ca may be seen spreading its thick, narrow, dull 
green, needle-pointed leaves in every direction to 
protect the tall stem in its center, crowned with 
innumerable, creamy, bell-shaped flowers. 

On the higher ground and foot-hills, scattered 
among the sage, are thousands of dark green 
bushes struggling with the sage for supremacy 
and gaining only by means of the countless num- 
ber of spikes of flowers, resembling a wisteria, 
which sway in the breeze and sunlight, and pre- 
sent to the eye a delicate mingling of shades, 
from a slightly-tinted to a deep blue and purple. 

Farther south, where the land slopes gradu- 
ally to form a shallow basin, is a stretch of wild 
verbenas forming a ragged, scarlet carpet 
splotched with lavendar and purple and green. 
& hundred varieties of cacti, Indian paint brush, 
flaming red on the landscape; flowers small and 
large, bell-shaped, funnel-shaped, cup-shaped; 
flowers resembling the lily, the daisy, the butter- 
cup all find their life-giving substance on the 
desert in March. 

To the right and left, at irregular intervals, 
fire small patches of white sand glistening in 
the lazy sunshine. The whitish green of the 
sage, the dull green yucca, the different greens 
of the cacti, mixed with the many shades of red, 
blue, yellow, and purple, give one the satisfying 
impression that a desert in bloom is a mirage 
of Paradise. 

I. E. BRENNEMAN '14. 



TIME 



We have all the time there is. Why do you 
wish for more time ? Is there anywhere an extra 
supply of time? Can a day have more than 
twenty-four hours? Why do you say, "If only I 
had time"? You have all the time there is. Can 
any power add one second to the length of a 
day? Can any power take a single second from 
the length of a day? You have all the time 
there is. 

Do you wish that you had done something yes- 
terday? Stop wishing! Do it now! Do you 
regret a wasted moment? It cannot be replaced. 
Never can you get it back. Do you spend any 
time planning for what you might have done 
"if only — "? Stop! If you have anything to do, 
do it now. Yesterday will never come back. The 
day gone is gone forever. 

And be not mistaken and look forward to the 



morrow to do something. Can you do anything 
tomorrow. Do it JNIOW! 

\esterday has lied. No more can we live in 
that dead eternity. Not even God can call back 
tne past and give it back to us to live over again. 
Tno ail tne prayers and regrets of tne past ages 
were neaped togetner, their combined force could 
not give us bacK one second. Yesterday is not. 
Only today, NOW, is. Don't do tnings yesterday. 
It cannot be done. Nor can you do anytnmg to- 
morrow. TOMORROW means NOT doing — 
and FAILURE. Yesterday and tomorrow are 
not. Rut today is. TODAY means DOING — and 
SUCCESS. 

Put away your idle dreams and plans. Put 
away your mistakes and regrets. Tnese things 
are not. They are dead or unborn. Only in the 
time NOW does anytning exist. Do it NOW! 
NOW is the time for your thoughts to become 
deeds. Time waits for no man. 

The only tning of which life is made is TO- 
DAY. 

"The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, 
Moves on; nor all thy Piety nor Wit 
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line, 
Nor all tny Tears wash out a Word of it. 

"Tomorrow's fate, though thou be wise, 
Thou canst not tell nor yet surmise; 
Pass, tnerefore, not today in vain, 
For it will never come back again." 

— Omar Khayyam. 



"MUSIC A LA MODE" 



There is a second Conservatory Hall of Music 
in Leoanon Valley College, according to my two 
montns experience, and tnat is tne men's dormi- 
tory. The xessons are free, and each student is 
his own teacner of voice and of instrumental 
music. Every student is studying and training 
very earnestly in order to fill the vacant chair left 
by the late Caruso, the greatest Italian tenor 
tnat the world has ever witnessed. Everyone 
sings hard with his utmost ability, especially a 
few minutes before supper. The high and low, 
sweet and fiat voices nil the autumn air of the 
campus every evening. Some songs are so sweet 
that they are turning the butter sour. 

Therefore, I cannot sing the oldtime songs for 
whicn my soul so often longs, in the midst of 
such sweet voices. I almost fear to try, for when 
I raise my baritone, the neignbors start to scoff 
and groan, and I cannot tell you why. Tnen the old 
piano starts to try to drown my voice, while 
,)inks, wno lives just over the hall, has many 
pointed things to say in language far from 
choice. If I begin with "Nellie Gray", some 
fool in roaring voice will pray, and then, perhaps, 
he will cuss. Somebody else will imitate a lone- 
some cat, another fool will yell, "Hey, stop that 
fuss!" And so it goes! Oh! woe is me! To save 
my life, I cannot see what ails that doleful bunch. 
I fear my voice does not appeal to those who 
pray and swear and squeal. But that is just the 
college life. H. L, '26.

in a chemical reaction the molecules hold hands.

Ipse Dixit 
and Galileo 



There was much learning but 
little real knowledge in Galileo's 
time (1564-1642). Aristotle was 
swallowed in bad Latin transla- 
tions. Ipse dixit. No one checked 
him by what seemed vulgar, 
coarse experiment. 

Galileo fought against the 
dead hand of tradition. He did 
not argue about Aristotle, but 
put him to the test. Aristotle led 
his readers to believe that of two 
bodies the heavier will fall the 
faster. Galileo simply climbed 
to the top of the Leaning Tower 
of Pisa and dropped two un- 
equal weights. The "best peo- 
ple" were horrified; they even 
refused to believe the result — 
that the weights reached the 
ground in equal times. 

''Look at the world, and ex- 
periment, experiment," cried 
Galileo. 

The biggest man in the 16th 



century was not Galileo in pop- 
ular estimation, but Suleiman 
the Magnificent, the Ottoman 
Emperor, who swept through 
Eastern Europe with fire and 
sword and almost captured 
Vienna. Where is his magnifi- 
cence now? 

Galileo gave us science— 
established the paramount 
right , of experimental evidence. 
Suleiman did little to help the 
world. 

Hardly an experiment is made 
in modern science, which does 
not apply Galileo's results. 
When, for instance, the physic- 
ists in the Research Laboratories 
of the General Electric Company 
study the motions of electrons 
inrarified atmospheres, or exper- 
iment to heighten the efficiency 
of generators and motors, they 
follow Galileo's example and 
substitute facts for beliefs*

CHRISTMAS 



The summum bonum, as the teachings of the 
great men of all the ages have come to agree, 
is Love. To the word God we immortal beings 
have given the attribute of being the personifica- 
tion of the highest good, of the best that can 
exist. God is Love. 

It is winter. It ha3 come to chill our bodies. 
Are our souls to become chilled also? No! But 
in proportion as the elements outside become 
harsher may our souls become gentler and 
warmer. 

It is the season of the birth of the religion 
of Love. Some nineteen hundred years ago was 
born the man whose immortal work was the giv- 
ing of the greatest of religions to the world. 
What is this religion? What is it that Christ 
stands for, to every soul who understands never 
so little about him? It is Love. 

Christ's message of Love is ever new. Can it 
ever lose its greatness, its nobleness, its sub- 
limity, its preciousness to each soul that catches 
a glimpse of it? Its wonder surpasseth all un- 
derstanding. Brighter than the greatest bright- 
ness is the glory of it. It is a brightness not 
of this world, though in ti, but of the spiritual, 
m the eternal, world. 

Where is Love found ? Just as Heaven is found 
within us, so is it within us that Love dwells. 
Search it not out upon the hills nor yet upon the 
Plains. Go not out to "God's Country" to find it. 
ihere it is not. Only here is it. Do we go to 
China or to India to find ourselves? Then why 
look we anywhere but into ourselves to find God 
and Love? 

Young man, believe in those golden things you 
s ee m the girl you hope to make happy. Young 



woman, have faith in your love of the boy with 
whom you hope to share the best years of your 
life. But let neither of you use the name of 
Love in vain; give not the name of Love to that 
which is not Love. Do this and later — do not for- 
get this lesson. For the love of man for woman, 
woman for man, is a joyous, glorious, sublime 
apprenticeship to the greatest love, like that 
which God has for mankind. 

Christmas is near. Its signs are everywhere. 
What does it mean to you? Is it a time when 
you vex your soul with worries of gifts? Give 
the supreme gift, Love. You may not be able 
to give others things of great money value. No 
matter — give the most precious of gifts. It is a 
gift that cannot be bought, though all wealth and 
power were offered for it. It is the gift the 
Man of Galilee gave, "Silver and gold have I none, 
but such as I have I give unto thee." Blessed 
are we indeed if we follow his example! 

Friends, when you go home for the Christmas 
holidays, let your heart overflow. The old folks 
have missed you. Now, while you are at home, 
show them your love for them. They have lav- 
ished love upon you; now lavish it upon them. 
"The old folks are hungrier for love than for 
bread." 

Think not that you can help the poor by giv- 
ing them material things. True, the gifts of 
food and clothing are gifts that Christ himself 
would give; but Christ did give a gift to the 
poor far greater than these. Hearken unto 
Ruskin, "It is not written, blessed is he that 
feedeth the poor, but he that considereth the poor. 
A little thought and a little kindness are often 
worth more than a great deal of money." 

And so, friends, during this Christmas season, 
let our souls become spreaders of Love.

LA PHILOSOPHIE 



Love 

For when we talk of loving we mean that we 
have found some one greater than we in wnose 
lile we can merge our own that his will become 
ours, ana we, tmougn union witn him, shall escape 
our own pettiness. 

Love is not love which has not holy fear at 
the iieart of it. — Calmer. 



Riches take wings, comforts vanish, hope with- 
ers away, but love stays with us. Love is God. — 
Lew Yvaiiace. 



The principal reason why people fall in love 
is because they are so constituted, physically and 
mentany, tnat it is tne normal, natural thing for 
tnem to do. There is not one single formula 
for arousing love. It just happens. — Dr. Britan. 



Love is the one thing that never looks for a 
return from its expenditure and the only thing 
that never misses it. — J. K. Wilson, D.D. 



Love, Religion and Work are the great funda- 
mentals of life. — Walter W. Manning. 



The first and necessary impulse of every truly 
taught and knightly heart is this of blind service 
to ics lady; that where that true faith and captiv- 
ity are not, all wayward and wicked passions 
must be; and that in this rapturous obedience to 
tne single love of his youth, is the sanctification 
of ail man's strength, and the continuance of all 
his purposes. And this, not because such obedi- 
ence would be safe, or honourable, were it ever 
rendered to the unworthy; but because it ought 
to be impossible for every noble youth — it is im- 
possible for every one rightly trained — to love 
any one whose gentle counsel he cannot trust, 
or whose prayerful command he can hesitate to 
obey. — John Ruskin. 



One of the most common evidences of uncon- 
trolled emotionality is jealousy. Three hundred 
years ago Shakespeare well named it "the green- 
eyed monster." Some have made the grave mis- 
take of being pleased at signs of jealousy in 
those they like or admire, regarding this as 
proof of their depth of love. Instead, it is one 
of the strongest evidences of their excessive love 
for themselves. Jealousy springs from selfish- 
ness. Jealous persons are always thinking of 
their pleasures, their desires, their interests, and 
are chiefly occupied with thoughts of themselves. 
They want all attention centered on them, and 
show their love ( ? ) and fondness ( ? ) when they 
do not receive it in temper or outbreaks of rage. 
This is not love, "that thinketh not of itself, that 
suffereth long, and is kind." — Louise Francis 
Spaller. 



Though I speak with the tongues of men and 
of angels, and have not love, I am become as 
sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And 
though I have the gift of prophecy, and under- 
stand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and 
though I have all faith, so that I could remove 
mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And 
though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, 
and though I give my body to be burned, and 
have not love, it profiteth me nothing. 



Love suffereth long, and is kind; love enviel 
not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up 
doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not he 
own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; re 
joiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth 
beareth all things, believeth all things, hopet 
all things, endureth all things. 

Love never faileth; but wnether there be pr< 
phecies, these shall fail; whether there 1 
tongues, they shall cease; whether there be kno 
ledge, it shall vanish away. — St. Paul. 



Above all things have fervent love amon; 
yourselves. — St. Peter. 



Where Love is, God is. He that dwelleth id 
Love dwelleth in God. God is Love. Therefore] 
love. Without distinction, without calculation 
without procrastination, love. Lavish it upoi 
the poor, where it is very easy; especially upoi 
the rich, who often need it most; most of a 
upon our equals, where it is very difficult, am 
for whom perhaps we each do least of all 
Henry Drummond. 



PRACTICAL ADVICE 



When you use a line, be sure it is well-grease 
but a fact or so would make a splendid dressing 



Fellows! When you lay your heart at the foe 
of a woman, be sure she is no kicker. 



How much better it would be if people woul 
realize that feathers do not make the bird. 



Smile 

When you're down and out, smile. Just smile. 
Smile wnether you feel like it or not. When 
everything goes wrong, smile. When you're hap- 
py, smile. When you're blue, smile. Whatever) 
you are, smile. It won't hurt you, it will do 
you good, and it will do the other fellow good, 
It isn't strenuous, such mild exercise will harm 
no one. It doesn't take much time; in fact, you'll 
never miss the time, and you're much more 
beautiful when you smile. You know some of 
us need all such contributions. Just try it, 
won't you? Good! There it goes. I knew you 
could. Now take a peep into the mirror, quick, 
before you lose it. There, now, isn't that lovely? 
I just knew you could do it. All you had to do 
was to try. Now just keep trying and you'll keep 
smiling, and the first thing you know the blues 
will be flying and there'll be no need of sighing 
or trying, for you'll just love to smile.

THE THIRD READER 



After all the books with which I have spent 
long hours, there is a particular one tnat tilled 
my childisn years witn joy and inspiration. Even 
wnile tne a b c's stumbled from my tongue, I 
desired to read this book, as one desires the 
friendship of a person often seen but yet un- 
known. I loved the pictures of which I c ould 
not know the stories. I hated the stupid sen- 
tence of my first book: "I see a cat. The cat 
sees me." So, unknown to my teacher, I treas- 
ured a precious Third Reader in my desk. I 
must confess that my zeal in studying was not 
due to a natural inclination alone, but to my 
strong desire to grasp the riches of my pre- 
cious book. 

Therefore I studied diligently and received my 
reward in less than two years. I could not ex- 
press the pride and joy with which I showed my 
book to my mother. In my excitement I forgot 
all about supper. I had my book. Often before 
I had looked at the pictures in it, but since it 
became mine, I studied them with new interest. 
One especially charmed me. A man and a lion 
stood facing each other in the arena of a vast 
amphitheater. Hundreds of people pointed cruel 
hands at them. Before I could read the words 
beiow tne picture, the dark cloud of smoke in the 
background drew my attention. But now I spelled 
out the hard words: "Ar-ba-ces to the lion! Ar- 
ba-ces to the lion!" My heart beat with excite- 
ment. I sfelt myself in that throng clamoring 
"Arbaces to the lion." 

In another picture dark Pluto had caught the 
fair Prosperina from the sunlight. I gleaned the 
story of that and many other illustrations in my 
book. My heart light and gay danced and sang 
with The Brook of Tennyson. The stories of 
Jennie Wade and Molly Pitcher filled me with 
courage. The cruel fate of the mother weeping 
for her lost child melted me to tears. I learned 
through my Third Reader to live in the book I 
read. 

As I grew older, other books came into my 
hands. I read them eagerly. No day passed 
without some story to enrich my mind. Fortu- 
nately, most of the books I read have received 
tne praise of great writers and critics. I laughed 
and cried. I lived with Dickens, Thackeray and 
Lytton. Literature is filled with allusions to 
the stories I read in my Third Reader. And 
when I meet with them, I go back fondly to 
those first years in which I learned to love books. 
And as an old man loves to go back home after 
years of wandering, I love to dream of the days 
of my Third Reader. Like a little girl who clings 
lovingly to the old dollie in spite of new ones, 
my affections are true to my Third Reader, which 
opened to me the beautiful world of books.

A CAMOUFLAGED VACATION 



Our idea of a vacation is a time wlun we have 
nothing to do but to take life easy and enjoy 
ourselves. The vacation granted us by our kind 
Faculty on Monday, November thirteenth, 
changed our idea of a vacation: esnecially for 
the Freshmen, and a few of the Sophomores. 

The vacation granted us by the Faculty offi- 
cially took effect Monday morning at eight 



o'clock, but this vacation really begc.n at mid- 
nignt lor tne underclassmen, in oruer to ceie- 
biate our lootbaii victory over Sosquenanna, tne 
unuerciassmen went arouna town and gatnered 
togetner all tne old boxes, barrels, crates and 
teiegrapn poles that were ootainaDie. 

me toiiowing morning many of tne good citi- 
zens v.x Annvnie were at tne conege seeKing 
tneir belongings which had so mysteriously dis- 
appeared on tne nignt beiore. 'ine Electric Com- 
pany also found some oi tneir property on the 
atniecic neid, wnich tney removed promptly. 

After tne many citizens had recovered their 
property, we found tnat we did not nave enough 
wood to make tne stack of debris as large as we 
desired, so we started out througn tne town to 
get more junk. We went to every business place 
and gatnered together all the boxes and other 
rubbish which tney did not want, and took it to 
the atnletic field. 

The greatest task we had to perform was to 
take a telegraph pole from one of the back 
alleys. Tnis pole weighed a tnousand pounds, 
and required some lifting and pulling to get it 
to the athletic field. After we reached the field 
we placed the pole in the ground and tnen stacked 
the boxes and barrels about it. When our task 
was completed, the pile of wood was fifteen feet 
in diameter and twenty-five feet in height. 

In the evening, before the great " ;in of wood 
was lit, we had a series of speeches by the dif- 
ferent men of the school who are interested in 
football. Doctor Gossard, alumni athletic man- 
ager, the coach, the captain of the team, the 
chef all spoke inspiringly to the student body. 
After this Doctor Gossard applied the burning 
brand to the pile of wood, and the lip-tit from 
this o-reat bonfire could be seen for several miles. 

After the fire had burned out, we returned to 
the dormitory, and considered this vacation one 
of the best times we had so far at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, even though it was camouflaged. 



QUAKERS 



It is strange how few people know anything 
about Quakers, even in our own State of Penn- 
sylvania, which was founded by William Penn, 
a Quaker. It was John Fox who converted Penn 
to his religion based on the truth that there is 
an inner light in every man, which, if he would 
only heed it, would lead him to righteousness. 
Penn, after havinp- been punished for profession 
of this new faith in England, finally came to 
America with a little band of followers, and 
settled in the State of Pennsylvania. 

In Philadelphia and its vicinity one may still 
see these Quakers, or as they call themselves, 
"Friends," but they are becoming fewer and few- 
er. The women wear plain dresses, shawls, and 
bonnets of dull gray or brown, while the men 
wear broad-brimmed hats and plain, dark suits 
without collars on their coats. Because of this 
plain dress, the Friends are often confused in 
people's minds with the Pennsylvania Germans, 
from whom they differ greatly in reality. 

Another peculiarity is their speech. While oth- 
er people use "thee" and "thou" with the cor- 
resnonding verb forms only in addressing the 
Deity, the Friends use this form of speech habit- 
ually in addressing each other. Instead of say- 



I 



ing January, February, March, etc., for the 
months of tne year, tney say first month, second 
montn, tnird montn, nolding tnat tne common 
names were taken from the names of heatnen 
gods, and tnerefore snould not be used. * or tne 
same reason, tney call tne days of tne week first, 
second, tnird clay, etc. 

In tneir religious services, Friends differ great- 
ly from other sects. On Sunday morning, usu- 
ally at ten o clock, they have a service wnicn lasts 
for one nour. During tnis time, they sit m snent 
worship unless one of their number feels moved 
to say something that he feels will help the oth- 
ers. There are no paid ministers, but tnose men 
of the meeting who have a gift for speaking sit 
on a bencn facing the others, and speak wnen- 
ever they feel called upon to do so. Tne Friends' 
meeting has no ceremony, for they do not even 
beiieve in baptism or communion except in the 
spiritual sense. 

The Society of Friends is, I think, an excellent 
example of a people living their religion. Smok- 
ing, drinking and swearing are so unusual as to 
be practically unknown among them, and angry 
words would seem inconsistent with their gentle 
"thou". But they err in keeping too much 
to themselves and in making no new converts. 
The fire of their religion seems to have burned 
low, and their young people in many cases, dis- 
satisfied with the silent meetings and lack of re- 
ligious instruction, go to other denominations 
to worship, so that the Society of Friends has 
become almost extinct in the state which they 
founded for the furtherance of their religion. 

D.S. '26. 



ONLY A SCRUB 



Few people ever noticed him, to the majority 
he was unknown. However, every evening of 
the season, he arrived on the gridiron promptly 
at 3.30 and remained there until darkness dis- 
missed the team from signals and scrimmage. 
He then returned to his dormitory and his 
studies. He was not exceedingly brilliant, nor 
did the professors ever grant him any more 
favors than were due the average man. He was 
not popular with the students, he did not seem 
to be one of them. Everything in the world was 
against him. 

On Saturday, after having had to put up with 
the poorest type of accommodation and trans- 
portation, he was sent to play against a team 
almost as heavy as the one tnat the varsity 
played. But the team he played did not have 
and thus could not give to him the reputation 
that a varsity man would receive. No honor, 
esteem, or wild applause was to be his. 

In the game he fougnt as hard as he was able, 
after having battled with the varsity for the 
entire week. Pernaps he lost, perhaps he won, 
but through it all he did his best. 

At night he returned by the same route by 
which he had gone. Few noticed him, possibly 
someone casually asked him the score. If he 
lost, they simply sighed "Too bad" and went 
their way. If he won, they meekly said "Good 
work, keep it up". Amid the cheers that he help- 
ed give for the varsity, none was included for 
him or for the team on which he played. 

Thus the season passed. He had obtained only 
criticism, fatigue and injury. He had received a 
low grade and unpopularity; he had received 
only the undesirable. But upon the gridiron, 
either at home or away from home, he had sac- 
rificed his very best for his Alma Mater. Through 
it all, — he was only a Scrub.

Don't borrow a creed from other people, 

Nor hang most faith on the stoutest steeple. 

Look up for your law, but oh! look higher 

Than the hands on any humanspire. 

If ten think alike, and you think alone, 

That never proves 'tis ten to one 

They are right, you wrong; for truth, you see, 

Is not a thing of majority. 

It never can make you false, them true, 

That there's more of them than there is of you: 

If your touch is on Truth's garment's hem, 

There is more of you than a world of them. 

Tis not alone in the Orient region, 

That a certain hero's name is Legion. 

Nor was it only for once to be 

That the whole herd together ran down to the sea. 

Your zenith for no man else is true: 

Your beam from the sun comes alone to you. 

And the thought the great God gave your brain 

Is vour own for the world, or the world's in vain. 

— Edward Rowland Sill. 
* * * 

Man is his own star: and the soul that can 
Render an honest and an upright man, 
Commands all light, all influence, all fate; 
Nothing to him falls early or too late. 
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill, 
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still. 

— Beaumont and Fletcher.

Mrs. John .boughter, and was born in tne Monroe 
Valley^ in the northern section of this county. He 
entered the ministry about 30 years ago. 

He leaves his widow and three sons, E. Kep-

served charges at Ephrata, Reading, Oberlin, 
Dauphin county, Orwigsburg, Lykens, and else-

place cards led tne guests to tneir seats at tne 
table, and tne old-fashioned nose-gays of fifty 
years ago made novel favors for tne dignified 
guests. Each guest received an invitation in 
rnyme to take part in a charade with four or 
five others. The charades aided much in bring- 
ing into the limelignt the hitherto unexpressed 
and certainly unexpected talents with which our 
beloved faculty is endowed. Certainly none of us 
suspected that the Greek Department harbored 
a clog dancer! Neither did we expect that some 
of the members of our staid faculty might even 
pretent to emulate some well-known comedians. 
The clever little charade portraying the Japanese 
word will be long remembered, as well as the 
mock wedding and particularly the sweet little 
girl who carried the train for the bride. The 
members of the faculty are always pleased by 
these delightful and unusual entertainments at 
the home of our President. The student body 
certainly wishes that each faculty member will 
have many other opportunities to make merry 
under the Gossard roof-tree. 



PHILO 

The following program was rendered by Philo 
on Nov. 17, 1922: 

Freshman Impressions of L. V. CRaymond Tyson 

Who Shall Go to College? Alfred Frock 

Debate: Resolved, That Sophomores Should Have 

the Power to Enforce Freshman Rules. 

Affirmative — Elmer Eshelman, M. H. Welty. 
Negative — J. B. Reed, C. Roper. 

Japanese Song Henry Ishimura 

Original Poem Samuel Early 

All the men on the program are new members 
of the society. Their appearance and their ren- 
dition of the program augurs well, indeed, for the 
future welfare of our dear old Philo. 

On Nov. 22, 1922, a score of the new members 
received their second degree. 



JUNIOR PLAY 



The production of the Junior play, "The Pil- 
lars of Society," by Ibsen, has been postponed un- 
til after the mid-year examinations. The play 
will probably be produced in February. 



Prof. H. H. Shenk was one of the judges in 
the Lafayette-F. & M. debate at Lancaster on 
Oecember 8th. 



There is no good in life but love — but love! 
\Vnat eise ioo^s goou, is some snaue iiung fro 
love; 

Love gads it, gives it worth. 

— xtobert Browning. 

Let us love so well 

Uur worK snail still be sweeter for our love, 
And stm our love oe sweeter ior our work. 

— Enzabetn rsarrett Browning. 

Pure religion as taugnt by Jesus Christ is a 
life, a growtn, a divme spirit witnin. coming out 
in love and sympatny and neipfuiness to our 
feilow-men. — or. n. W. xhomas. 

MUSIC CONSERVATORY 

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that 
we watch tne rapid growtn, development and ad- 
vancement of tne Conservatory of Music of Leba- 
non Vaney College with the arrival of Dr. Johann 
M. Blose as director and Sir Edward Baxter fer- 
ry as concert pianist and teacher, from Hood Col- 
lege. Tnis progress is also aided materially by 
the able assistance of Prof. Campbell in tne de- 
partments of Piano, Organ, and History, and of 
Prof. Hardman as head of the Voice department. 
The Conservatory has always been regarded by 
many Literary students as a department separate 
from the college proper, and now it is with great 
pleasure that we watcn this barrier being broken 
down and the Conservatory coming into its own. 

Among the many improvements, two stand out 
witn greatest prominence, viz., the formation of 
an Oratorio Society and the organization of the 
Students Evening Recitals. 

«r r ,T he 1 ,, 0ratorio Societ y at present is studying 
lhe Messiah," by Handel, to be rendered some 
time after Christmas. The work being done by 
this society is indeed praise-worthy. 

The Students Evening Recital meets every 
other Tuesday evening. It renders a programme 
which all are cordially invited and urged to at- 
tend. Upon a comparison of our Recital Pro- 
grammes with those of other conservatories, even 
those of old standing and those much larger and 
more famous than our own, we find that their 
programmes do not nearly equal our programmes 
either in class or difficulty of Musical Literature. 
Tnis means that our Conservatory is finally tak- 
ing its place among the first conservatories of 
the country. This progress is due to the able 
directorship of Dr. Blose and his able assistants 
in the various departments. 

On Monday night, Nov. 27, 1922, the follow- 
ing programme was rendered:

ir-a., on tne twenty -nitn. He will ao tne same 
at iork and Miuuietown early in December. 

THE CHORAL SOCIETY 

The Choral Society of tne Lebanon Valley Con- 
servatory of Music will present Handel s "Mes- 
siah" on January the sixteenth. Tnis organiza- 
tion will be assisted by a group of musicians 
from the r'hiiaaelphia Symphony Orcnestra. The 
soioists include Mrs. Edith Gingricn Harnish, so- 
prano, of r-almyra; Mrs. Kdith rrantz Milis, con- 
tralto, of Annvnle; Prof. Frank Hardman, tenor, 
of Lebanon Valley College, and JProf. W. H. Har- 
clerode, baritone, of Harnsburg. This indeed, 
bids fair to be one of the rarest treats offered to 
music lovers and artists in this vicinity for some 
time. 



On Friday evening, November 24, 1922, Clio 
gave its 52nd Annual Anniversary. Maidens in 
r'uritan garb led tne guests to tneir seats. They 
gave a curious, old-world atmospnere — these 
aainty maidens, and caused everyone to wonder 
the why and tne wherefore. The first part of 
the program was as follows:

"matcn-iactory" were to be noticed. And weii

Everyone pronounced the anniversary a great 
success, ana the oniy general regret was mat

CLIO ALUMNI PROGRAM 

On November the seventeenth, just one week 
before tne fifty-second anniversary, Clio fea- 
tured a most unusual program, wnen Alumni 
Clionians presented a program in Engle Con- 
servatory of Music. Mrs. B. F. Oaugnerty, of 
Lebanon, presided, while Mrs. Lillian Kreider 
Shroyer acted as secretary. Tne program, of the 
very nignest type, represented tne talent of the 
Clio Alumni in Lebanon County and environs. 

Mrs. Edith Gingrich Harnisn opened the pro- 
gram with an organ number, after wnicn Miss 
nelen Ethel Meyers ably discoursed on "Some- 
tning Other Than Fiction." Mrs. Louise Ober- 
dicK Smith, of York, delighted Clio with a vocal 
solo well rendered; Miss Alma Light, of Ann- 
ville, read effectively from Alice Growell Hoff- 
man s poems. By the way, Clio expects to have 
Mrs. Hoffman at Lebanon Valley College at some 
future time, when she will read her own poems. 
She is another of Clio's Alumni members. The 
applause which followed Mrs. Nettie Lockeman 
Kreider and Mrs. Louise Kreider Strickler after 
their rendition of the piano duet is proof enough 
of the merit of the number. Miss Miriam Cas- 
sel, who graduated with the class of '22, but who 
is teaching in the Palmyra High School, read a 
splendid essay, "Quittin' School." The grand 
finale of the program was the appearance of the 
incomparable alumni quartette — Mrs. Edith 
Frantz Mills, Mrs. Lucile Mills Gerberich, Mrs. 



Edith Gingrich Harnish, and Mrs. 'Lillian Kreider 
Shroyer, who held the audience speli-bound. 

Inueed, tne influence of tnis Alumni program 
was easily felt in the program presented on .No- 
vember tne twenty-fourtn, when one of tiie most 
skillfully handled and most well rounded anni- 
versary programs was produced. It is tne fer- 
vent desire of Clio that tne Alumni members will 
come back to her nails feeling the atmosphere 
of comradeship and realizing tnat Clionians con- 
tinue to live up to the motto, "Virtute et Fide". 



SOCIAL BRIEFS 

Miss Frances M. Durbin and Miss Margaret 
Walters, tne latter a former student here, vis-

LEBANON VALLEY GIVES LEHIGH HARD 
BATTLE— HOLDS OPPONENT TO 
ONE TOUCHDOWN 



On" Saturday, November 18, Lebanon Valley 
Staged a brilliant game with Lehigh University 
on their home field. Although Lebanon Valley 
was outweighed thirteen pounds per man, the 
game was a fight from start to finish. After a 
fierce resistance by the Blue and White defense, 
Lehigh succeeded in scoring a touchdown in the 
first half. In the second half, when the ball was 
in Leaigh's territory, and Lehigh kicked, the kick 
was blocked by one of our linemen, who had 
broken through. Lehigh was required to kick 
again, and a second time the kick by Cusick was 
blocked, and this time behind Lehigh's goal. Cu- 
sick recovered the second, but Lebanon Valley 
made their only score of 2 from the safety. After 
that neither side was able to score, and the game 
resulted in a final score of 6-2. A great fight 
was staged by the Blue and White gridmen, and 
only for a little misfortunate the score might 
have been different, but we are proud of the 
score as it stands. Lehigh expected to crush the 
Lebanon Valley team without any trouble. They 
soon discovered that they were up against a 
fighting team, and Lehigh had a hard time to 
score one touchdown.

LEBANON VALLEY LOSES TO GETTYSBURG 



Lebanon Valley held the battlefield boys to 
three field goals and one touchdown in the battle 
that tooK place on Saturday, Nov. 25, at Gettys- 
burg. During the first period the score was 0-0, 
but in the second period Bream, of Gettysburg, 
drop-kicked successfully from the 18-yd. line. 
The half ended with the score: Gettysburg, 3; 
Lebanon Valley, 0. Lebanon Valley came back 
in the second period with lots of fight. Unfor- 
tunately, Frock, our great defensive center, was 
knocked out of the game, and a little later Hen- 
nie Homan, star quarterback, was carried from 
the field. This greatly weakened our team. Get- 
tysburg was able to score only one touchdown, 
but Bream had a dependable toe and succeeded 
in putting over two more drop-kicks. Lebanon 
Valley put up a brilliant fight, in spite of the 
loss of some of the regulars, but was unable to 
score. Line-up:

REVIEW OF THE FOOTBALL 

SEASON AT LEBANON VALLEY 



Contrary to the opinion of many people, Leba- 
non Valley came through her football season very 
successfully, and the men who represented L. V. 
are to be congratulated for having done the work 
which they did. Through their efforts Lebanon 
Valley has won a place of distinction among all 
the colleges of the east. Throughout the entire 
season, our fellows have put up a strong, con- 
sistent fight against every team which they met 
(whether large or small), and in every contest 
they were all there to win or die fighting. More 
than this, every man played like a gentleman, 
and all played together as a team and not as 
individuals. Each man deserves credit for what 



he did for the team as a whole, but "Hennie" 
Homan, our aggressive quarterback, and "Jerry" 
j?rocn, our cuoi-neaaed center aeserve special 
praise for tneir acuity ana service. 

Several persons nave questioned concerning Le- 
hign and Gettysburg, uur loss to tnese two 
scnoois can be accounted for tnusly — tne first 
due to poor sportsmansnip on tne part of tne 
ornciais, and tne latter due to tne same on the 
part ot tne piayers of tne opposing team and 
also due to breaks. We do not care to say more 
concerning tins. We nave given tins only by 
way of explanation.

The Reserve team, although losin^ the major- 
ity of their games by low scores, have really nad 
a successful season. Under tne leadersnip of 
Capt. Keigel, the scrubs went spiendioly, and out- 
scored tneir opponents by 41 points. Tne scrubs 
had not won a game in the last two years, but 
this year they came tnru in great style. Not 
only for their playing on the opponents' held do 
they deserve credit, but also for battling tne var- 
sity into shape for their weekly contests.

Coach Wilder and his assistant, Coach Hol- 
linger, deserve due credit for having placed the 
team in tne condition tney were in, and Capt. 
Beck and acting Capt. Lauster deserve much 
praise for the morale which tny created among 
tne ieliows. Lebanon Valley can be proud to 
know that the team wnich represented her on the 
gridiron this year was tne "scrappiest bunch in 
the east" and tnat witn it all, her piayers were 
gentlemen and sports. 

Smitn and Renn will be lost to the team 
through graduation. Smith, who was captain 
last year, did splendid work in the backfield this 
year. "Birdie" Renn, our plucky guard, surely 
deserves praise for the game ne piayed tnrougn- 
out the entire season. Though outweighed in 
nearly every contest, Birdie put up a fignt that 
was admirable. He surely is worthy of much 
praise for his pep and his school spirit. Next 
year's team will miss him very much. 

Outlook -for 1923 

Though Lebanon Valley seemed to have had a 
very heavy schedule this past season, she will 
have one that is equally as difficult next year. 
Due to the fact that most of the old team will 
be back next year, we feel fully confident that 
our fellows will not be afraid to do the manly 
things and meet big tasks with as much enthusi- 



asm and determination to do their best as well 
as in the smaller ones. 

The following schedule has been arranged. 

Sept. 29— Penn State at Penn State. 

Oct. 6 — Georgetown at Washington. 

Oct. 13— Open. 

Oct. 20— F. & M. at Lancaster. 
Oct. 27 — West Point Military Academy at West 
Point. 
Nov. 3 — Open. 

Nov. 10 — Springfield at Springfield, Mass. 

Nov. 17 — Gettysburg at Hanover. 

Nov. 24 — Susquehanna at Selinsgrove. 

Nov. 29 — Washington at Chestertown. 

The management was sorry to refuse offers 
to play Yale and Navy, but conditions did not 
warrant the acceptance of the same. 

"Fat" Lauster, our husky guard, has been 
elected captain for 1923, and under his leader- 
ship we are assured of a most successful season. 



BASKETBALL OUTLOOK FOR 1922-23 



Lebanon Valley is fortunate in having practi- 
cally the same team in basketball this year as 
last. Under the management of Richard Smith, 
the following schedule has been arranged: 

Dec. 15 — Gettysburg, away. 

Dec. 16 — Lafayette, away. 

Jan. 6 — Open. 

Jan. 12 — Seton Hall, away. 

Jan. 13 — Moravian, away. 

Jan. 19 — Moravian, home. 

Jan. 20 — Franklin & Marshall, away. 

Jan. 24 — Villanova, Hershey. 

Jan. 26 — Juniata, away. 

Jan. 27— Penn State, away. 

Feb. 1 — Juniata, at home. 

Feb. 2 — Susquehanna, away. 

Feb. 9 — Georgetown, away. 

Feb. 10 — Gallaudet, away. 

Feb. 17 — Open. 

Feb. 23 — Delaware, away. 

Feb. 24 — Villanova, away. 

Mar. 3 — Gettysburg, Lebanon. 

Mar. 10 — Susquehanna, Hershey. 

Under the leadership of Capt. Walter Wolfe, 
L. V. is looking forward to a successful season 
this year. Coach Hollinger is busy preparing 
and selecting those who will represent us this 
year in this sport.

Just iniiiK now stupendous it is, tnat tne tnree

to anve our country to ruin! it is untninKaDie. 
hut pray, give us leave to breatne one last re- 
gret ere tuese tnings snail pass away. 

I fear they misjudge us, somewhat at least. 
I reany beneve tnat tne college presidents who 
wisn to revolutionize our conege work believe 
that going to college is merely a fad, and tnat 
in tne going we are Dut following tne nerd. Tney 
do not, l Delieve, creait young America for hav- 
ing an nonest and sincere desire for an education, 
how utterly riaiculous! 

They say, then, that our beloved colleges must 
fortnwitn Decome eitner Junior colleges or some 
higner institutions of specialization. A Junior 
college inaeea — and what then, we demand, will 
become of our ne dIus ultra faculty ? Tnese men 
wno are accustomed to have sitting at their feet 
those wno are seeking out and tnrustmg open 
those massive, closed doors in the temple of 
learning — tnese men, I asK, must tney cease their 
mighty work in order to instill into tne craniums 
of post Hign Scnool students some futile drops 
of knowledge? No, we protest, strenuously. 

Then the other alternative — a higher school of 
specialization. But in wnat snail we specialize? 
Tnere is Science, to be sure, but there are also 
Music, and History, and Latin, and English, and 
ail the rest — and wnat is to become of them? 
Here again we raise our voices in loud acclaim. 
We would remain L. V. C. not only for twenty 
years — but forever. . 

Now do not think us unpatriotic, I beg, for 
they say that financial ruin stares us in the 
face if the colleges are allowed to maintain this 
break-neck speed of increase in attendance. It 
is only that we sigh for the plans that we have 
made for our part in the triumphal march of 
progress. And to think, these must now be 
dashed upon a stone, and L. V. C. — our Alma 
Mater — must become a Junior College, a prep 
school, or else her students will be compelled to 
spend eight hours every day for four years 
learning why some bugs have only four legs 
whereas they formerly had six. 

Neither would we presume to set up our opin- 
ions against those of College presidents all over 
our country. We realize, indeed, that they are 
the only competent judges. No, but let me say 
again, we would raise our voices in a last cry

Practice Makes Perfection 
Frosh — Do you think exams are any good, pro- 
fessor ? 

Prof. Derickson — Yes, they are excellent 
training. 

Frosh — Well, I guess so. I practiced two 
weeks before the final examination in high school 
last year, learning how to turn the pages of a 
book with my toes. 

* * * 
Hands Like Feet 

Stein — Say, Chief, I was at a peculiar poker 
party last night. There was a cowboy, a doctor, 
a Chinaman and myself there. 

Chief — That was a peculiar combination. 

Stein — And you should have seen the hands 
in that game. I held four queens, the cowboy 
held four kings and the Chinaman held five aces. 

Chief— Well, what did the doctor hold? 

Stein — An inquest over the dead Chinaman. 

They No Spikka Da English 
Troutman (in Greek 16) — Professor, what lan- 
guage do the Greeks speak? 

Dr. Spangler — I'm not certain, but I think it 
was Greek.

Love Is Blind 

Nigrelli — My dear, I love you and must marry 
you. 

She — Have you seen my father yet? 
Nigrelli — Yes, but I love you just as much.

Nevling — Don't get gay wid me Bob, I'm so 

hard I scratches the bath tub. 
Reigle — That's nuthin', I'm so tough I shaves 

wid a blow torch. 

* * * 

Shock — Sock 

Dusty — I'm an electrician. Last night at 
Alma's house the fuse blew out and I fixed it. 
Some class to your room-mate, eh what? 

Lichty — You're no electrician, you're an idiot. 

* * * 

Ambition 

Professor — Young man, what do you expect to 
be when you get out of college? 
Sam Earley — An old man. 

During the chemistry movies the lights went 
out, and immediatelv Elsie Clark was heard to 
exclaim, "Oh, my dear!" 

* * * 

Quaid (reading leisurely from a book) — "A 
wife is not just a person to cook dinners and 
mend socks but — " 

Rhoad — "What was that you were reading?" 

Quaid (looking up) — "I said a woman was in- 
tended to cook the socks and darn the , dinner."

After an explanation of the air pump in 
Physics: 

Miss Heindel — "Prof, how can one tell when 
one has a vacuum." 

Prof. Grimm — "It is hard to tell. Some people 
have one and never know it." 



Two Ways of Seeing a Thing 
Bill Rhoad — "If you would start to class when 

I do, you would not need to run so." 

Gruver — "Yes, and if you would run like I do, 

you would not need to start so early." 

* * * 

Scrub Prof. — Can any of you people sug- 
gest a method by which I may improve my lec- 
tures ? 

Voice from last row — Yes, have you ever tried 
to sell them as blank verse. 

* * * 

Professor — I wonder why foot ball men always 
get such low marks. 

Coach — That's because I coach them to hit low 
all the time. 

Reidle, at drug store — Mr. Seabold, can you 
recommend anything to keen my hair in. 

Mr. Seabold — Any old tobacco or candy box 
will do.

Barber — You are a stranger here, are you not? 
I don't recognize your face. 

Weiser — Oh, it has healed up since I was here 
last.

"My Time Has Come!" said Harrah, as he 
opened a package in the post office and pulled 
out his Ingersol nine day alarm.

Esther — Waitress, there is a potato bug in my 
soup. 

Eleanor — What do you expect for $200.00 a 
year — gold bugs? 

* * * 

Dusty has increased his so-called "Harem" by 
three-fold since school opened this year. In our 
estimation he soon will have to "Scarem" or 
he'll be swamped.

Adams — Ma^ I kiss you good night? 

Pearl — No, Ed, it is my principle never to kiss 
anyone good night. 

Adams — Well, let's drop the principle and show - 
some interest. 

* * * 

Alumnus — Good morning, Professor. Don't 
you remember me? You sent me to the library 
for a book five years ago. 

Prof. Grimm — Oh, yes; do you have the book? 

* * * 

Felix Kreider says — When I'm in the parlor 
with a girl, and the lights go out, I'm always 
embarrassed; not that I feel so much for my- 
self, but I always feel for the girl. 



"A little loving now and then is relish'd by 
the best of men." 



When girls quit powdering their noses, 
And fellows get a new line; 

When Skipper stops sending out bills, 
And students get to chapel on time — 
Oh, that will be glory! 



Everybody expects to become an angel, but 
I'm afraid some will have to be dehorned.

The Quaker who made 
Chemistry a Science 



&p*^||AVENDISH had shown 
W B§jfcgl that two volumes of hy- 
f^|SM drogen and one of oxygen 
P^sW^^I always combine com- 
pletely to form water and nothing 
else. Proust, a Frenchman, had 
proved that natural and artificial 
carbonates of copper are always 
constant in composition. 

"There must be some law in 
this," reasoned Dalton (1766- 
1844), the Quaker mathematician 
and school teacher. That law he 
proceeded to discover by weighing 
and measuring. He found that each 
element has a combining weight 
of its own. To explain this, he 
evolved his atomic theory — the 
atoms of each element are all 
alike in size and weight; hence 
a combination can occur only in 
definite proportions. 

Dalton's theory was published 
in 1808. In that same year, Na- 



poleon made his brother, Joseph, 
king of Spain. This was considered 
a political event of tremendous 
importance. But Joseph left no 
lasting impression, while Daltom 
by his discovery, elevated chem- 
istry from a mass of unclassified 
observations and recipes into a 
science. 

Modern scientists have gone be- 
yond Dalton. They have found 
the atom to be composed of elec- 
trons, minute electrical particles. 
In the Research Laboratories of 
the General Electric Company 
much has been done to make this 
theory practically applicable so 
that chemists can actually predict 
the physical, chemical and elec- 
trical properties of compounds yet 
undiscovered. 

In a world of fleeting events 
the spirit of science and research 
endures.

We hear much today about discussions and 
quarrels upon the subject of higner education. 
In educational councils, in college faculties, in 
groups of college presidents, the question "Are 
there too many students in our colleges" is 
brought up for discussion. 

Before the World War, the number of students 
in colleges pursuing cultural courses was low 
compared to the average number today. When 
the war came upon the United States, the de- 
mand for men trained technically was great, and 
the colleges and universities opened their doors 
and enlarged their technical courses to fulfil the 
demand. In consequence, men and women en- 
tered colleges not for the same purpose as be- 
fore but for the purpose of obtaining a practi- 
cal education to fit them for those positions in 
life which must be filled efficiently. 

Moreover, during the war many people made 
more money than ever before, and in order to 
"11 the social position in life made necessary be- 
cause of their money, they rushed their sons and 
daughters into colleges. We have many of them 
in our colleges today, and although it may be 
a hard question for many of us to solve, the 
solution is up to us. "But," youy ask, "what 
are the objections to having these students in 
our colleges?" The answer is simple. In Ameri- 
ca today we have a great line of division rising 
between the so-called cultured people and those 
°t the laboring class. This line of division is 



causing much trouble in our nation today. The 
laboring groups feel that college people are con- 
descending and unable to associate with com- 
mon clay. And there must be some foundation 
for such a feeling. This foundation we find in 
the general antipathy toward labor among col- 
lege students in our institutions today. This at- 
titude is without doubt a result of the sudden 
rush into college of many people particularly 
of the "get-rich-quick" group. To these people, 
more than to any others, we are indebted for 
the general opinion that there are too many 
people in college. 

What do we have to do in this situation? It 
is up to us as college people to prove to the 
world that we are of college calibre, that college 
life and atmosphere does not weaken, but 
strengthens our love of association with our 
fellowmen, and makes us better able to cope 
with questions of world importance and to solve 
problems for others with lasting solutions. 
Moreover, we must remember that an individual 
who manipulates a loom in a cotton mill is just 
as important to the work of the world as is he 
who expounds doctrines of philosophy in the 
class room. 

So, in order to fulfil our several missions in 
this world we might well make the Scriptural 
command our most important resolution for 1923 
and all the years thereafter: 

"Love thy neighbor as thyself."

LA PHILOSOPHIE 



To love God is to have good health, good 
looks, good sense, experience, a kindly nature 
and a fair balance of cash in hand. "We know 
that all things work together for good to them 
that love God." To be loved by God is the same 
as to love Him. We love Him because He first 
loved us. — Samuel Butler. 

* * * 

It were better to have no opinion of God at 
all than such an opinion as is unworthy of Him; 
for the one is belief, the other is contumely (and 
certainly superstition is the reproach of the 
Deity). And as the contumely is greater to- 
wards God, so the danger is greater towards 



men. Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philoso- 
phy, to natural piety, to laws, to reputation — al. 
of wnich may be guides to an outward moral vir 
tue, tnougn religion were not; but superstition 
dismounts all tnese, and erectetn an absoiut 
monarciiy in the minds of men. — The master of 
superstition is the people; and in all superstition 
wise men follow fools; and arguments are fitted 
to practice in a reversed order. — Francis Bacon. 

* * * !.'.;■ a 

You cannot lead your children faithfully to 
those narrow, axe-hewn cnurch altars of yours, 
while the dark azure altars in heaven, the moun- 
tains that sustain your island tnrone, mountains 
on which a Pagan world would have seen the 
powers of heaven rest in every wreathed cloud 
. — remain for you without inscription; altars 
built, not to, but by, an Unknown God. — John 
Ruskin. 

* * * 

Say what you will, there is the man who gives 
his time, his strength, his life, if need be, fo 
something not himself, — whether he call it his 
queen, his country, his colors, or his fellow-man, 
— something more truly Christian than in all th 
ascetic fasts, humiliations and confessions tha 
have ever been made. — O. S. Marden. 

Say: O, ye Unbelievers! 
I worship not that which ye wor- 
. .., . ship. 

And ye worship not that which I 
worship; 

1 shall never worship that which ye 

worship, 

Neither will ye worship that which 

I worship; 
To you be your religion ;to me my 

religion. 

—The Koran, Sura CIX. 

* * * 

And, finally, if you have a gloomy religio 
get rid of it. There are plenty of cheerful re- 
ligions to be had. Hear Robert Louis Steven 
. son: "Gentleness and cheerfulness, these com' 
before morality; they are the perfect virtues." 
And again he says: "If your morals are dreary, 
depend upon it they are wrong. I do not say, 
'Give them up', for they may be all you have, 
but conceal them like a vice, lest they shoul 
spoil the lives of better and simpler people."^ 
Dr. Frank Crane. 

* * * 

Is, there any religion whose followers can hf 
. pointed to as distinctly more amiable and trust 
. worthy than those of any other. If so, tbi 
should be enough. I find the nicest and best 
people generally profess no religion at all, bu 
are ready to like the best men of all religions. 
— Samuel Butler. 

* * * 

Religion is not a strange or added thing, bu 
the inspiration of the secular life, the breathin 
of an eternal spirit through this temporal world. 
The supreme thing, in short, is not a thing at all, 
but the giving of a further finish to the multi- 
tudinous words and acts which make up the 
- sum of every common day. — Henry Drummond. 

* * * 

Prayer is the contemplation of the facts of 
life from the highest point of view.— Emerson. '

A TALE 



f 



On the sunny morning of a beautiful fall day, 
in tne year of 16o6, fthen Kane, a pretty, sandy- 
naired, dancing eyed young girl, left ner home 
in the valley wnicn takes its name from tne lordly 
inhabitant of tne overlooking mountain — tne Bald 
Eagle — and started on a journey to that then far 
Western State of Illinois. 

She traveled the length of this fertile valley 
until she came to the little hamlet of Irish set- 
tlers, Tyrone; from here sne expected to take the 
famous "Overland Express" west. But by some 
trick of fate, her brother-in-law, Jacob Ginter, 
happened to be in the village and insisted that 
Ellen return with him to his home in the little 
settlement, which had been named for his father, 
in the county of Clearfield, directly northwest of 
Tyrone, and which section of the country was 
noted for its beauty — indeed, it was and is one 
of the most beautiful spots on the slopes of the 
Alleghenies. Ellen was easily persuaded and on 
the morning of the fourth day of her departure 
from her Bald Eagle home, she started on her 
fateful journey to Ginter over the rude frontier 
road which leads up — up from the little Irish 
hamlet. 

There were no settlements between Tyrone and 
Ginter, but there was a farm house at the very 
top of the mountain, which was the home of Noel 
Dunlap, one of Clearfield's brave pioneers. Jacob 
wished to reach this hospitable home before dusk, 
and with the long mountain ascent, knew that 
Ellen would be too tired to go any farther. The 
first part of the ride was uneventful. Ellen en- 
joyed the mountain scenery, and wondered at the 
difference in the trees, flowers, and birds from 
those in her valley home. They ate lunch beside 
a mountain spring, the surrounding beauty of 
which, with its glorious daubs of purple, gold 
and crimson, no artist could ever paint. The 
afternoon wore slowly away; they saw no human 
being, but many wild things looked out from the 
deep forest, and once a startled doe leaped across 
the road in front of their "Caravan". Lulled by 
the stillness of the atmosphere and the rocking 
of the wagon, Ellen fell to dreaming of her 
Bald Eagle home — of the shadows on the Juniata, 
—and of the fright caused by the midnight 
shriek of the king of birds as he swooped low 
after his prey. 

It was now quite dark, and in a quarter of an 
hour, Ellen was eating a good warm supper. The 
journey was easily finished the next day, and 
Ellen was doubly repaid for any hardships she 
had endured, by the gladness and surprise of her 
sister, Agnes, whom she had not seen for two 
years. 

The days were uneventful but pleasant. Ellen 
spent most of her time amusing Baby John and 
helping Agnes to prepare for the long hard win- 
ter that was sure to come after November the 
nfteenth. As October was drawing to a close, 
she decided that she would start to Illinois the 
first week of November. Agnes was sorry to 
hear this, and coaxed her to spend the winter 
with them, but to no avail. As a farewell party, 
Agnes invited the young people of the little set- 
tlement and the surrounding farms to her home 
on Hallowe'en night. About half-past ten, when 
all the young people had gone, but Ellen's two 
best friends, they decided to try the old Hallow- 



een custom of sitting in a dark room in absolute 
silence, from eleven to twelve, after which anyone 
who wished to find out what the future held in 
store, merely had to look into a churn in ad- 
joining room. 

The gins were absolutely silent from eleven to 
twelve, and there was no light in the room except 
the weird light cast by the dying embers of tne 
fire. At the stroke of twelve, Mary quietly arose, 
went out to the dark kitchen and in a few minutes 
was back, shaking with suppressed iaugnter — 
but she did not dare to break the spell. Then 
Wenonah slipped quietly out, but it seemed as 
if she stayed hours, and when she returned, it 
- was with slow steps and in an unusually bright 
flicker of the fire they could see that tears 
were streaming down her face. Ellen hesitated. 
Would she come back like Mary or like Wenonah ? 
Then summoning courage she ran out to the 
dark kitchen, to return in a few minutes. She 
lit the candles, turned towards Mary and asked 
her what she had seen. Mary said: "I saw a 
tall, dark, good looking man and in his right 
hand he carried a large brass ke>r." (Within a 
year, Mary married a merchant from Tyrone.) 
Wenonah had stopped crying, but with tears in 
her voice, she told of her vision, "I saw a collin, a 
white coffin, rind bending over it was my sweet- 
heart." (Wenonah died from heart trouble be- 
fore the break of the new year.) Ellen couldn't 
even stop to sympathize, she was so anxious to 
tell her fate. She cried: "Oh o-irls, I saw; ves, 
I did. I saw — the devii!" Upon further ques- 
tioning the girls obtained a more detailed descrip- 
tion which disclosed Ellen's man of the churn to 
be "a tall, young man with black hair — hair as 
thick as a shepherd dog's. He had his sleeves 
rolled up — and his arms had the largest muscles 
you ever saw — and his opened, shirt collar showed 
that his breast was powerful and hairy — and he 
was poking a fire." Never suspecting any truth 
in the fates disclosed by the churn "Fortune 
Teller", with their spirits only slightly damp- 
ened by Wenonah's woeful vision, they went to 
bed pleased with their experiment. 

The next morning Jake had to make a trip to 
the big mill at Spruce Flats, which was about 
three miles from Ginter, to obtain some material 
which he had taken to the mill to be finished, 
from which he was going to make Agnes a cedar 
chest for Christmas. As Ellen had never seen 
a mill of just this type, the girls coaxed to 
go along, and Jake was very glad for their 
company. Trying to satisfy her euriosity, and 
there were so many things that she had never 
seen before — Ellen became separated from the 
girls, and all at once found herself in a large 
room in which there was a large Franklin fur- 
nace, the fire in which a young man was very 
energetically poking. Calling for the girls, she 
-an out of the room and met them just outside 
the door. She cried, "Oh girls, I've seen him." 
"Whom?" "The devil; you know, the one I saw 
last night in the churn." Noticing that Mary's 
gaze was directed over her head, she turned 
rmickly around and saw immediately back of her 
the young man whom she had so vividly and con- 
cretely described. Mary laughinglv introduced 
this "devil," as "John Miller, the mill's engineer, 
who has been away for some time, which accounts 
for your not meeting him before." Ellen very 
lemurely acknowledged the introduction, and 



tend her party the previous night, but he had

gone, Halen went to bed, cried, decided to go to 
Illinois, and lmaiiy went to sleep planning to find 
out at least what had cbanged Jobn so before 
sbe left. Ellen bad fallen in love with John just 
as quickly and as deeply as he had fallen in love 
witn ber. 

.But — John came on Monday night. He talked 
a little. Ellen brightened just a wee bit. John 
came on Tuesday nigbt. He talked a little more. 
Ellen even laughed discreetly. Jobn didn't come 
Wednesday nignt; he had to stay in camp to sole 
his sboes. He made all sorts of plans. Ellen 
wept and started to pack. John came on Thurs- 
day nignt, talked a lot, and did some explaining. 
Ellen sigbed, then smiled and at last laughed. 
John came on Friday night, "popped the ques- 
tion." Ellen said "Yes," then smiled, laughed, 
and became hystercial. 

Wnen Sunday came, they had become sensible 
enough to plan for the wedding. John wanted 
to be married the next Sunday. Ellen not until 
after New Year; finally they compromised and de- 
cided upon Sunday, December the twenty-sixth. 

And so it came about that Ellen Kane and John 
Miller were married in Ginter settlement, on the 
"second Christmas", 1858, and I, one of their 
fifty grandchildren, can say truthfully that they 
lived together "happily even afterwards" for 
fifty-five years.

OUR BASKETBALL TEAM 



Somehow or other there was an awful hulla- 
buloo raised because our Varsity lost their first 
two basketball games. But those who raised the 
howl simply didn't understand. Certainly we 
lost, we don't deny that, but what we dislike 
terribly is the fact that support of any team 
must depend upon the success of the first and 
second games. Don't you realize, friend, that, af- 
ter all, the force which makes any team worth 
while does not lie within the team itself but in 
those whom the team represents. It is up to 
those who are represented to place a morale in 
a team which will force them thru every difficulty 
and bring them thru successful in every event. 
Every one of us lost as much as did the members 
of the team which represented us. We're sorry, 
but what has that got to do with the winning of 
the remainder of our games? It's up to us to 
be with the boys and show them that we are 



with them, and then and then only can we expect 
tne fellows to represent us as we really wish 
tnem to represent us. It's up to tne student and 
tne moral support tbat you give the team rather 
tnan tne team itself. At least you have no kick 
coming until you have done your best for the 
welfare of the team. Well, get busy and do 
your darndest and tne team will come across with 
admiraole results. 



YOUR NEEDS — YOUR DESIRES 



In one of the rooms of the Boys' Dorm there 
can be found this statement, "Make your needs 
your desires". It is not set in the midst of 
beautiful decorations; it is not even on paper. It 
is penciled in a gauche hand on the rough wall 
just in front of the student as he sits at his 
table. 

Ask him what it means and he will tell you. 
He does not remember whether he saw it wuile 
reading some author or whether it is a concen- 
tration of his of some article that he had read. 
He only knows that he did put it there some 
montns ago and that it expresses his philosophy. 

All have needs — all have desires. The two 
are not the same. There are some needs tnat 
are not desires. A man may need physical ex- 
ercise but doesn't desire it. It would be the 
best thing possible for him to spend an hour or. 
two digging a ditch, but just as surely he has 
no desire to do so. A boor may need education 
and culture; does he desire it? Furthermore, 
there are many desires that are not needs, 
man desires to drink liquor; surely the desire 
does not constitute a need. A man, having eaten 
a full meal, desires to continue the feasting; his 
need tells him to cease. 

Now, having both needs and desires, whicl 
is a man most likely to satisfy? He needs phy- 
sical exertion; he desires to be free from muscu- 
lar effort. He needs bread and milk; he desires 
complex dishes of French labling. He needs pure 
air; he desires a smoke. He needs sleep; he 
desires a "good time" at the dance. Unless he 
is wise his desires are too often gratified at 
the expense of his needs. 

Happy is he whose desires coincide with hia 
needs. For, desiring a thing, he usually gets, 
it. And what can be better than one's needs 
be fulfilled? 

Is it not a sound philosophy to "Make your 
needs your desires" ? 



THE PASSING YEARS 



Do you mark the passing years 

With Joy or Sorrow? 
Do you- mourn the past with bitter tears, 

Nor hope for the tomorrow? 

Does every day present to you a deep regret 

That yesterday has gone, — 
Or with hope and joy and without a fret 

Do you labor while time speeds on? 

Can you not find in each passing day and yeai 

A recompense for every cost, — 
And. weighing every joy, hope, care and fear, — 

Find something gained, not lost. 



Each day marks the death of an Old Yeat? 
and the birth of a New Year. How much better 
it would be to make resolutions daily and de- 
velop from these principles than to make prin- 
ciples on the eve or dawn of one day and then 
break them every other day in the year. 



ActivitievS 



STAR COURSE 



On Wednesday, December the thirteenth, the 
second btar Course number, William Sterling 
Uattis, interpreter and autnority on Dickens, was 
presented to a large and appreciative audience. 
Bill Sykes, the Old Grandfather; Uriah Heaps, 
cnaracters from "David Copperheld" and "The 
lale of Two Cities," even Charles Dickens himself, 
came before the vision of tne onlookers with more 
vividness than ever before, and were made to live 
through the efforts of the interpreter. Mr. Battis, 
the foremost authority upon Charles Dickens 
and his works, has been pursuing this work 
for many years, and has spent much time secur- 
ing costumes suitable and appropriate in making 
his portrayals true to life. 

Tne next Star Course number to be presented 
in the early art of January, will be the "Parker- 
Fennelly Duo," from the Power School of Ex- 
pression, Boston. 



THE CHRISTMAS BANQUET 



Several hundred boarding students and mem- 
bers of the facult" and their wives were guests 
of the college at the Christmas banquet held in 
North Hall on Thursday, December the four- 
teenth. Dr. I. E. Runk and Pres. G D. Gossard 
acted as toastmasters. Messrs. Roland Renn and 
Ralph Boyer, of the Senior Class, responded to 
toasts; Miss Edna Baker and Mr. C. C. Smith, 
of the Junior Class, responded, as did Misses 
Kathryn Nissly and Helen Hostetter, of the 
Sophomore Class, and Miss Ruth Rockefellow 
and Mr. Mervin Welty, of the Freshman Class. 
Prof. C. R. Gingrich, Prof. J. E. Lehman, Prof. 
R. R. Butterwick and Prof. T. B. Beatty were the 
faculty members who responded to toasts. After 
the dinner a party was held in the Alumni Gym- 
nasium, which added much to make this Christ- 
mas banquet one of the best in L. V.'s history. 

The mistletoe and holly contributed by Mr. 
Carl Hiser, '22, of Stillwater, Okla., arrived too 
late to be used in the decoration, but the "L. V. 
C. Family" appreciate Mr. Hiser's kind remem- 
brance, and wish him a "Happy New Year". 



CLIO OFFICERS 



The election of officers for the winter term of 
the Clionian Literary Society are as follows: 

President, Agnes Merchitis; vice president, 
Mae Morrow; critic, Delia Herr; recording secre- 
tary, Lena Weisman; corresponding secretary, 
Edith Geyer; chaplain, Esther Roudenbush; 
pianist, Margaret Rhodes; editor, Sara Wieder. 

The Clio Christmas program was held Decem- 
ber the fifteenth, at which time the new officers 
presided. Miss Ida Trout read an essay, "The 
Spirit of Christmas," and Miss Blanche Lengle 
told of the origin of the Christmas tree. Miss 
Dorothy Mancha and Miss Betty Leachey pro- 
vided the musical numbers of the program, a 
Diano and vocal solo respectively. Miss Lucile 
A/r k nresent ed several Christmas poems, and 
Miss MiHred Leech read a Russian Christmas 
story. Miss Josenhine Matolitis produced the 
New Year Resolutions of the Freshmen, and 
Miss Sara Dearwechter told interestingly of the 
lmnortant current events. Clio adjourned to meet 
in 1923. 



CLIO-PHILO JOINT SESSION 



Probably one of the most unusual and most 
talked 01 joint session programs neid nere for 
some time was tne joint session program be- 
tween LJlio and .fnilo, presented uirecuy after 
tne Thanksgiving holidays. Yvitn interest in 
the national question of tue Ku Klux iuan run- 
ning high, it was psychological tnat tne ques- 
tion, "resolved, Tnat tne ku klux Klan is an 
Asset to the United States," be debated here. 
Mr. Ralph JBoyer and Miss Kosa Zeigier ably de- 
fended tne cause of tne Klan, wane Miss iviabel 
Silver and Mr. Gladstone Cooiey tore it to tat- 
ters, winning the decision of tne juuges — Presi- 
dent Gossard, Mrs. Greene and Mr. Earnest Wil- 
liams. Tne playlet portraying tne work of the 
Kian was tne center of mucn interest and ques- 
tioning among townspeople as well as members 
of the student body. With rumors of tne or- 
ganization of Klans in nearby towns., tne ap- 
pearance of a group of hooded individuals, sur- 
rounding a fiery cross on the campus, was the 
cause of much discussion and debate. 

M~ Paul Gruver extemporaneously gave a 
splendid resume of the current events of the 
week, and Miss Mae Morrow read a clever Jap- 
anese monologue. The Philo Orchestra of a 
goodly number of pieces furnished the music 
for the evening, and a sextette of Clionians and 
Philokosmians sang for a delighted audience. 
Dainty refreshments were served by the ladies 
to the strains of music from Philo's orchestra, 
after whcih members of both societies adjourned 
to pleasant dreams. 



AMERICAN COMMITTEE FOR 
RESTORATION OF 

LOUVAIN UNIVERSITY 



New York City, Dec. 18 — Hunter College, with 
a pledge of $2,600, is the first institution of 
higher education in the United States to an- 
nounce a contribution to the campaign for com- 
pletion of the $1,000,000 fund for restoration of 
Louvain Library. 

New York State College, Albany, also has 
made a pledge to the fund: $1,000 for one of the 
fifty bells which will form the carillon in the 
tower of the restored library. 

Renewal of the campaign for America's war 
memorial in Belgium was begun in New York 
State December 3. Since that date, both the 
College of the City of New York and New York 
University have been making canvasses for the 
fund which have not yet been completed. 

The campaign in New York extends not only 
into the universities and colleges, but into all 
the public schools of the State. An estimate 
made from reports already received indicates the 
public schools of New York City alone will con- 
tribute $25,000 toward restoring the famous li- 
brary. 

Universities and colleges in other states will 
participate in the campaign during the early 
months of 1923. 

The national committee is headed by Dr. 
Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia 
University, and has as members many of the 
best known educators of the United States. 



PHILO 

On Friday, Dec. 15, 1922, Philo rendered a 
very enjoyable program. Mr. Donald Fields gave 
a snort lecture upon the system of the ancient 
courts of Athens, and gave a detailed account 
of now cases were tried by jury in tnose days. 
Mr. Charles Leber marshaled before our minds 
the prospects of tne game of basketball at L. V. 
C. for tnis season. The debate of the evening 
was on the question: "Resolved, That L. V. C. 
Should be Located at Harrisburg Ratner Than 
at Annville." The debaters were all Freshmen: 
Messrs. Frock and Roper on the affirmative, and 
Messrs. Beard and Wilt on the negative. The 
decision of the judges was in favor of the nega- 
tive. An interesting talk upon the Fascisti and 
their leader was given by Mr. Elmer Andrews. 
Mr. Ray Troutman outlined for us tne purposes 
and aims of the great Frenchman who is now 
in America, M. Clemenceau. The last number 
on the program, The Question Box, by the Editor, 
was dispensed with, due to the lateness of the 
hour. 



KALO HOLDS INITIATION

KALO-DELPHI A N JOINT SESSION 



The Kalozetean and Delphian Literary Soci- 
eties met in oint session in Kalo Hall on Friday 
evening, December the fifteenth, when a splen- 
did program was rendered. Miss Frances Dur- 
bin presented very cleverly a sketch on the sub- 
ject. "My First Christmas," in essay form. Miss 
Rachael Heindel read an a^nronriate Christmas 
selection, and a chorus of mixed voices supnb'ed 
t>>e musical end of t>o Tiroo-ram . A sketch under 
the supervision of Miss Mae Reeves brought the 
atmosphere of Christmas to every individual pres- 
ent. Miss Riith Over and Mr. John Rhoads de- 
serve especial mention because of the clever por- 
trayal of their characters — Miss Over as the 
sleepy little girl and Mr. Rhoads as the tin sol- 
dier. Delphian will py> into session with Clio 
shortlv after the holidavs and aether of these 
cleverly planned programs is anticipated. 



Realizing that the greatest concern of woman 
is to obtain an appropriate husband, we marvel 
t>at 50 r>er cent of the girls are breathless with 
fear, while the other 50 per cent are breathless 
with anxiety when the word fire-escape is men- 
tioned. 



THE INTER-CLASS LEAGUES 

Under the direction of our Physical Director, 
Mr. iiollinger, a series of inter-ciass games will 
be played m basketball and volley ball. The 
Inter-cass Leagues in basketball nave been a 
prominent tning in the past few years, and we 
are sure that tnis year tney will be equally, if 
not more popular tnan during any of tne preced- 
ing years. Beside the League in basketball there 
Will be a league in vohey ball. Last year Coach 
Hoilmger introduced tnis sport to Lebanon Val- 
ley, and we nave been very much delighted to 
have met it. The League games were especially 
interesting last year and all wno played last year 
will wisn to piay this year. There is a greater 
number of persons who will be interested in par- 
ticipating in tnese leagues this year, and it is 
tne desire of tne Coach to run an extra series of 
games between Leagues that will be arranged 
according to the alphabet. This will prove to be 
very interesting, as these leagues will not be con- 
fined to members of any particular class, but will 
allow anyone to play. Details of the alphabetical 
leagues will be announced later. 

Tne following schedule for the boys' inter- 
class leagues has been arranged: 

Basketball Volleyball 
Jan. 8 — Seniors vs. Juniors Fresh vs. Soph 
Jan. 11 — Fresh vs. Soph Seniors vs. Juniors 

Jan. 15 — Juniors vs. Fresh 
Jan. 18— Seniors vs. Soph 
Jan. 22 — Seniors vs. Fresh 
Jan. 25 — Soph vs. Juniors 

You will note that there will be but two games 
each day scheduled. The basketball game will 
be called at 4 o'clock, the volleyball game will be 
played between halves. Due to the fact that 
the evening meal has been scheduled for 5.30, 
we will have quite enough time for some real 
games in both sports. No person wants to miss 
any of these games, and you will be pleased far 
more if yoyu can be able to get on either of the 
class teams. Forget your studies for one hour 
and enjoy "the best games of the season." 

You doubtless remember the wonderful games 
of indoor baseball that we enjoyed plaving out 
of doors last spring. Our gym is partially small 
but all the same, there will be a league formed 
in this sport also. Details of this will be an- 
nounced later. The various classes will have a 
chance to be represented in a handball league, 
the details of which will also be announced. 



Seniors vs. Soph 
Juniors vs. Fresh

LAFAYETTE WINS FROM L. V. C. 

The second basketball game of the season was 
played at Easton on Lafayette's home floor. 
Lebanon Valley succeeded in scoring 17 points to 
Lafayette's 36, a much better showing than we 
made against Gettysburg. We are expecting a 
few victories to come our way in the next games 
played. Our basketball players are under a great 
handicap in not having the advantage of a good 
gymnasium to practice in. But in site of that the 
fellows are going to bring home the bacon.

"JARGE" 



"Mistuh George Washington Thomas Jefferson 
Daniel Webster Tycoon," mostly addressed as 
"Jarge", was not only a duplicate of his father, 
but was an exact carbon copy of that vener- 
able and pompous gentleman of the Ethiopian 
race. 

"Jarge" followed his pater's footsteps in many 
ways, especially in his boyhood, when he wore 
his father's worn-out shoes and cast-off wearing 
apparel. "Jarge" was a shark at four things: 
firstly, shooting pool at Rastus Snobin's Billiard 
Emporium; secondly, playing poker in the back 
room of Enoch Pinkemly's Hot Dog Shop; third- 
ly, rolling the "bones" anywhere, any time 
against any one; and lastly, he excelled any one 
in being able to dodge honest manual labor ALL 
the time. 

That boy has three things about his character 
that will some day catch for him a million green- 
backs or a term in a penitentiary, most certainly 
and indisputably the latter, say I. Well, rough- 
ly speaking, those characteristics are as follows: 
Item One — Nerve. He has nerve enough to try 
to sell a safety razor to a licensed barber. Item 
Two — Luck. He could beat any fellow in a crap 
game even if his opponent did use loaded bones; 
no wonder — he carries a rabbit's foot and a horse 
shoe in his hip pocket all the time. Item Three — 
his ability as a public speaker is the most re- 
markable of them all. He can stand at a street 
corner and convince a crowd that the U. S. A. 
should join the League of Nations and then turn 
around and convince them the other way, within 
five minutes. 

Well, so much for the personality of "Mistuh 
Tycoon." 

"Jarge" heard about the brokerage business 
and the little or no work necessary to bring 
big returns, so he immediately decided that that 
was his calling. He thrived in his new found 
field of work with incredible celerity, and in- 
side of three weeks, his office door bore the sign: 
TYCOON & COMPANY 
Stocks and Bonds 
Geo. Tycoon Mgr. 

From the moment the above mentioned shingle 
appeared above the door step, the business of 
Tycoon & Company grew by leaps and bounds. 

When stocks dropped you should have heard 
"Jarge" use the French language, which he 
learned from the cook at Enoch Pinkemly's res- 
taurant, who was in France during the war. 
"Jarge" sure does shake a wicked tongue when 
he says, "Mon Dieu, Saprigte, Bonevare, Mazette." 
The neighbors always know when "Jarge's" 
stocks drop a point or two. 

One day a splashy salesman entered "Jarge's" 
office and after an hour's confidentially speak- 
ing to "Jarge", left Tyycoon & Company sole dis- 
tributors of 10,000 shares of the Aligazam Min- 
ing Company and of twice as many in the New 
Boston Oil Company. 

An hour later, Enoch Pinkemly called for in- 
formation about the market. Enoch was one of 
the many lucky speculating citizens of darktown, 
md now, keeping the restaurant going was a mat- 
term of form only. Enoch was known all over 
as being a lucky gambler, and if he bought a 
hundred shares of any concern, the office of Ty- 
coon & Company was swamped with orders for 
shares in the same company. 

"Ah say, Jarge. how is yo-all, an' how am de 
mahket?" asked Enoch. 

'Oh' so-so, dey am all good Enoch,' returned his 
broker friend amiably. 



"Wuffoh does yo-all think am a good buy, 
Jarge." 

"Well, ah doan know, but ah thinks dat de 
Pennsy Railroad am a good one." 

"Ah thinks ah'll buy some o dat, Jarge." 

'Now, wait, Enoch, Ah received today some 
stock o' de Oligazam Mining Company which am 
de bes' inves'ment dat ah knows except fo' de 
New Boston Oil Company, all o' which am seben 
pussent cumulative bonds which sells fo' ten dol- 
lahs a shah, an' which ah sho does considah a safe 
inves'ment. Yo' pays me half down an' in ten 
days ah gets fo' yo' a stock certificate fo' which 
yo' pays me de othah fifty pussent an' we calls it 
squah. Am dat cleah, Enoch?" 

"Do sho' sounds great to me, Jarge but wuffo' 
often do dem companies declah dividen's?" 

"Ebry six month." 

"Ah guess Ah'll take two hundred shahs o' each 
off yo' han's right off de reel, yas sah ah sho' 
does." 

Rastus Snobin was the next fish to be Caught. 
Rastus came in to have a friendly chat, and for 
a while conversation lagged, when Rastus spouted 
all of a sudden: 

"Wuffo' am a good buy ah asks yo' confidential- • 
ly." 

Jarge hemmed and hawed and consulted the 
stock report, and then answered: 

"Dey sho' am all good inves'ments. De mahket 
sho' am bright today." 

"Well, what am de best'?" 

"Ah has heah some shas o' de New Boston Oil 
Company an' de Aligazam Mining Company. Bof 
companies am magnanomous an' inco-po-ated un- 
dah de laws o' New Jersey, an' which am de bes' 
speculation ah can advise." 

Rastus fell and fell hard. 

"What am de price an' de terms an' de intrus' 
an' all de puhtickulahs ?" 

"De price am ten dollahs a shah, yo' pays half 
down an' de res' when yo' gets de certificate, an' 
de intrus' am seben pussent, payable ebery six 
month. Enoch Pinkemly jus' bought foh hun- 
dred shahs an' dat bird am lucky." 

"Ah guess Ah'll take two hundred o' each. If 
dat Enoch Pinkemly buys an ahticle ah likes to 
get de seame kin', 'cause dat boy am lucky." 

The first six months passed and the stockhold- 
ers got their dividends, and from then on those 
stocks were selling at $30.00 each share. 

It so happened that Enoch Pinkemly needed 
some ready cash and sold his shares at $30.00 
to make up the deficit. When the next interest 
date came, the New Boston Oil Company and 
the Aligazam Mining Company did not declare 
dividends. Investigation followed, and every 
stockholder was "outa luck". 

When the news circulated, every one went after 
"Jarge". It reminded many people of the battle 
of Bull Run. All those that didn't run are there 
yet — and believe me, everybody ran. 

The last anyone ever heard of "Jarge" was that 
he was traveling with a medicine show, and Ty- 
coon and Company are out of business for ever 
and a day. 

A week later, Enoch Pinkemly and Rastus Sno- 
bin were discussing the recent calamity when 
Enoch made the laconic expression: 

"Ah sho' wuz de lucky boy wiff dat specula- 
tion." 

"How does yo-all mean? Yo-all had as many 
shahs as me." 

'"Ah sold man shahs fo' thutty dollahs each." 

"Yo' sho' wuz de lucky boy. Wh didn't yo' tell 
me yo' did dat? But let me lay mah ban's on 
Tycoon an' Comp'ny!"

btvveen ivieunam aiiu ivrattapan, tnere stoou an 
inn, caiieu cne lalooru mn, or, as many cnose 
to can it, tne Han- way House, inis inn served 
as a mace ox s*ieu,er to wayiarers, anu especially 
at tms time, during tne rvevoiuuon, many sol- 
diers spent tne mgnt uere. Hie riuer iound it 
linpossioie to con tm ue ms journey, so ne spoke 
a lew worus to nis norse, wno went on. iney 
soon came to the inn, wnere tne norse turned, 
witnout any signal irom nis mascer. Alter 
tne norse nad been taKen to tne staoje. the man 
entered tne inn, and tne door closed benind 
him. 

ne entered a bright, cheery room, to the one 
sine 01 wmcn was we miiKeeper at nis desK, and 
on t^e otner sioe was a taoie. around wnicn 
were seated eignt men, drinking and carousing. 
Tne innkeeper uid not seem a part of tms scene. 
He looked up ratner absentiy when the door 
opened, but nis face brigntened wnen he saw 
tnat our stranger wore an American army uni- 
form. Tne somier in low tones asked for a room, 
and after a few more whispered words to the 
innkeeper, went up tne rickety stairs. 

A dim lignt was burning on a stand irt his 
room. He sat down near it and took from his 
pocket a letter addressed to General Wasning- 
ton, and spread it out on his knee. Having read 
and re-read it several times, he got up and 
began to pace the floor. " — arrival of another 
British ship — lies in Boston harbor — came in this 
afternoon, but will not unload until tomorrow 
after dawn — set your guns upon it — ," he repeat- 
ed over to himself. Then, having come to the 
decision tnat he dared not delay, he replaced 
the letter in his pocket and went downstairs. 

"I don't believe it's safe," he said to the inn- 
keeper, "to delay until tomorrow. T must get to 
Mattapan by dawn, and as the wind has ceased 
somewhat, I think I'd better try to go on." The 
men looked at him suspiciously, and some even 
rose to see him better. They were not accus- 
tomed to such a quiet, business-like person, and 
yet they liked his appearance and his manner. 

The innkeeper followed him to the door, and 
watched him until he was swallowed up in the 
night, and then returned. Hardly had he closed 
the door when horses' hoofs were heard on 
the road outside, and soon the door opened and 
a redcoat entered. He peered at the men around 
the table, helped himself to a drink, and then 
went up to the innkeeper. He asked if there 
was any man at the inn who seemed as if he 
had an important mission to accomplish, and 
who was a soldier of the American army. The 
innkeeper, fearing for his country, quite honestly 
denied that there was such a man at the inn. It 
was apparent, by the actions of this British sol- 
dier that he wished to lay his hands upon the 
man of whom he spoke. 

Carefully, the innkeeper led him into other 
matters of interest, and the men, joining in 
finally resorted to the common method of pass- 
ing an evening, and so they told tales and made 
merry. In the midst of a tale, told by one of 
the men, when the fair lady was being carried 
away by the goblin, the door opened and another 



American soldier, of about thirty-five years, en 
tered. He was very tall, and under the lo 
doorway he seemed a veritable giant. He spok 
a few words to the innkeeper, who answere 
him with a nod toward tne redcoat, who hear 
him finish his answer witn " — left just befor 
he came in.' The British soldier sensed th 
situation in an instant. With a bound, he stoo 
between the innkeeper and the officer. "Why 
didnt you tell me that before?" and after » 
curse and a shot he was gone, leaving tne doo 
wide open. Several of tne men ran after him, 
but he had fled. 

Gradually the night wore on. The men, due 
to their drinking, slept heavily, but the inn- 
keeper and the officer watched and talked, and 
then watched again. What was it they wer 
waiting for? 

Tnen came that dreadful darkness, just before 
dawn, wnen tne blackness and the silence seem 
stifling, and man wishes for the dawn — and light. 
The snence became more oppressive, when slowly 
and noiselessly the door opened, and a figure 
stood before tnem, not a form of flesh and blood, 
but an indefinable something, which the inn- 
keeper and his companion recognized immediate- 
ly, partly by the stately figure, partly by the 
calm, quiet bearing. 

Without a word, the figure pointed toward 
the window and vanished. In the darkness the 
officer groped his way to the window, and throw- 
ing aside the shutter, he beheld, along the hori- 
zon, a bright red glow, and he knew that, even 
unto death, his messenger had done his duty.

RELIGION 



Alas, if we were but wholesomely un-Christian, 
it would be impossible; It is our imaginary 
Christianity that helps us to commit these 
crimes, for we revel and luxuriate in our faith, 
for the lewd sensation of it; dressing it up, like 
everything else, in fiction. The dramatic Christi- 
anity of the organ and aisle, of dawn service 
and twilight revival — the Christianity which we 
do not fear to mix the mockery of, pictorically, 
with our play about the devil, in our Satanelles 
— Roberts, — Fausts, chanting hymns through 
traceried windows for background effect, and 
artistically modulating the "Dio" through varia- 
tion on variation of mimicked prayer; (while we 
distribute tracts, next day, for the benefit of un- 
cultivated swearers, upon what we suppose to be 
the signification of the Third Commandment;— 
this gas-lighted and gas-inspired Christianity we 
are triumphant in, and draw back the hem of 
our robes from the heretics who disput it. But 
to do a piece of common Christian righteousness 
in a plain English word or deed; to make Chris- 
tian law any rule of life, and found one National 
act or hope thereon, — we know too well what 
our faith comes to for that! You might sooner 
get lightning out of incense smoke than true 
action or passion out of your modern English 
religion. You had better get rid of the smoke, 
and the organ pipe, both; leave them, and the 
Gothic windows, and the painted glass, to the 
property man; eive up your carburetted hydrog- 
en ghost in one healthy expiration, and look af- 
ter Lazarus at the door-step. For there is a 
true Church wherever one hand meets another 
helpfully, and that is the only holy or Mother 
Church which ever was, or ever shall be. — John 
Ruskin.

Special Feature 



FRESHMEN NE W YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS 

In discussing the matter of Freshmen New 
Year's Resolutions with my classmates, I found 
that, besides making the usual resolutions to 
study as they had never studied before, and to 
do their best in everything, they all had re- 
solved to especially observe ten different rulings. 
These rulings may be likened unto ten com- 
mandments, with a resolution for each command- 
ment. Let all classes take heed, for doubtless 
there are many who could profit by the lowly 
Freshman's example: 

I. Thou shalt use only the back doors of thi 
administration building. 

Kesolved that this commandment will be strict 
ly adhered to, regardless of rain, or hail, or 
sleet, or ice, or snow, or even the most urgent 
requests of an upperclassman. 

II. Thou shalt open doors for faculty and 
upperclassmen. 

'. Resolved that we shall continue to obey this 
commandment in spite of the fact that it af- 
iords us the utmost pleasure and delight to do so. 
< ill. Thou shalt be especially observant of 
quiet hours. 

Resolved, one and all. that this commandment 
shall never be broken. We will always keep in 
mind the old adage that ''Freshmen should be 
seen and not heard." 

IV. Thou shak at all times give precedence to 
faculty, visitors, and upperclassmen. 

Resolved thac, being meek and humble Fresh- 
men, we are highly honored at all times to keep 
this commandment. 

V. Thou shalt rise at any time a person not 
of Freshman standing enters the room. 

Resolved that whether we be lost in the depths 
of that most interesting of books — "History of 
Medieval Europe" — or whether we are in the 
throes of an intricate problem of Hawke's 
"Higher Algebra," we will gladly rise from our 
tasks in order to show due respect and reverence 
to the upperclassmen. 

VI. Thou shalt answer door bells. 
Resolved that from now on the official door 

tenders, who heretofore have been more or less 
(mostly more) neglectful of their duties, will 
turn over a new leaf, and it will no longer be 
necessary for an upperclassman to run down 
the stairs to answer the ringing calls of the 
men. 

VII. Thou shalt not visit other girls' rooms 
between the hours of 7.30 and 10.00 P.M. 

Resolved that henceforth and forever will this 
•commandment be lived up to. even though there 
are eats in the other rooms, or even though 
pleasure, in the mild form of gossio, calls us 
away from the path of righteousness. This res- 
olution, it must be noticed will show the remark- 
able strength of the Freshman's will power. 

VIII Thou shalt not loiter in the company of 
young men in the college building on the campus, 
m the restaurant, or in the town. Neither shalt 
thou go to the post office with men except during 
walking hours. 

Resolved that even though the least one of Us 
is oftentimes tempted to break this rule, we 
shall not yield to temptation, for yielding is sin. 
Indeed, when seeing a young man approaching 
us, we shall go in a different direction. If it is 
inconvenient to do this, we shall greet him with 



a short '"Hello" and coldly turn our heads. This 
is truly a sure method of keeping the eighth 
commandment. 

IX. Thou shalt return to thy halls within 
fifteen minutes after tne end of college affairs. 

Resolved that the temptations of a light re- 
freshment, or of taking a walk in the moonlight 
vvith the man shall be ignored, and this command- 
ment be observed at all times and upon all occa- 
sions. 

X. Thou shalt not go walking with a man on 
Sunday evening. 

Resolved that this rule shall be strictly obeyed 
and that we girls will go to church on Sunday 
evening, even though that church be but the 
church in the wildwood. 

These are the ten chief resolutions we have 
made in regard to our school life. We hope 
you think they are worthy resolutions, and appro- 
priate to the season. In closing, we add the 
resolution that 
"Every day let's be improving, 
Every day let's be more kind, 
Let's keep each good impulse moving. 
. Thus, true happiness we'll find."

THE WAY YOU CAME 



Have you seen, when the rainbow linked Heaven 

to Earth, 

With a bridge of rare gems of unnamable worth, 
And of manifold hues interblending, transcending, 
All the glories of monarchs in splendor contend- 
ing? 

Am I right, love, to thik that it surely must be 
That by such jewelled pathway you came unto 
me? 

i 

Have you watched, as the moon flung a bridge 

o'er the sea 
All of luminous silver, so light and so free, 
Its delicate arch spanned the turbulent ocean, 
As the light of our hope spans life's angry com- 
motion ? 

Am I right, love, to think that it surely must be 
That by some such bright pathway you came 
unto me? 

Have you seen a rose cloud slowly drift o'er the 

sky, 

'Till it touched the rough crags of the mountain 
so high, 

And concealed its harsh outlines and hid its 
scarred breast, 

Softly crowned it with beauty it ne'er had pos- 
sessed? 

Thus my life at your coming was crowned now 

I see; 

It was in a rose cloud that you came unto me. 

Edward Baxter Perry. 



If your wife drinks, likker. 

Ever since the country went dry, — my wife 
nakes me likker. 

Some peonle ought to be eight day clocks, 
the way they're wound up.

The way of an Eagle in the air 




ENTURY after century 
men broke their necks 
trying to fly. They had 
not troubled to discover 
what Solomon called "the way of 
an eagle in the air." 

In 1 891 came Samuel Pierpont 
Langley, secretary of the Smith- 
sonian Institution. He wanted 
facts. His first step was to whirl 
flat surfaces in the air, to measure 
the air pressures required to sus- 
tain these surfaces in motion and 
to study the swirls and currents of 
the air itself. Finally, in 1896, he 
built a small steam-driven model 
which flew three-quarters of a 
mile. 

With a Congressional appro- 
priation of $50,000 Langley built 
a large man-carrying machine. Be- 
cause it was improperly launched, 
it dropped into the Potomac River. 
Years later, Glenn Curtiss flew it 
at Hammondsport, New York. 

Congress regarded Langley's 
attempt not as a scientific experi- 
ment but as a sad fiasco and 



refused to encourage him further. 
He died a disappointed man. 

Langley 's scientific study which 
ultimately gave us the airplane 
seemed unimportant in 1896. 
Whole newspaper pages were given 
up to the sixteen-to-one ratio of 
silver to gold. 

"Sixteen-to-one" is dead polit- 
ically. Thousands of airplanes 
cleave the air — airplanes built 
with the knowledge that Langley 
acquired. 

In this work the Laboratories of 
the General Electric Company 
played their part. They aided in 
developing the "supercharger," 
whereby an engine may be sup- 
plied with the air that it needs for 
combustion at altitudes of four 
miles and more. Getting the facts 
first, the Langley method, made 
the achievement possible. 

What is expedient or important 
today may be forgotten tomorrow. 
The spirit of scientific research 
and its achievements endure.
